We’re an organization of organizations aiming to create an ecologically balanced, economically secure, and socially just future.
We bring NGOs, businesses, faith groups, local governments, and educational institutions together to accomplish community- and Earth-based objectives that are difficult to pull off alone.
Think old-fashioned barn-raisings, but with an eco and justice twist.
I’m with Pando
We’re inspired by Pando, the one-tree forest that interconnects and nurtures tens of thousands of trees through a common rootball.
Being Pando means I belong to you, you belong to me, we belong to each other.
Pando communities cultivate unity amidst great diversity. With creativity and can-do spirit harnessed for the common good. Grounded in big ideas. Radically committed.
We’re aiming for ecolibrium
Our vision is the world that Pope Francis describes as “integral ecology,” philosopher John Cobb calls “ecological civilization,” and designer John Bielenberg names as a state of “ecolibrium,” where the Earth and its people are in balance.
We network people and organizations together who support the vision. Launch galvanizing initiatives and events. And serve as a clearinghouse of resources.
Pando at Maryknoll
At the Maryknoll Sisters’ 7 ½ acre compound in Monrovia, we’re bringing women who have taken lifelong vows of poverty together with some of the country’s top designers, urban farmers together with social impact entrepreneurs, believers of all kinds together with those who don’t relate to any traditional faith to model, accelerate, and educate about incarnating a new way of living.
