Roots. We’re inspired by Pando, the one-tree forest in remote southern Utah that interconnects and nurtures tens of thousands of trees through a common rootball.
Big ideas. Being Pando means I belong to you, you belong to me, we belong to each other. It includes what Pope Francis describes as “integral ecology” and philosopher John Cobb sums up as “ecological civilization.”
Get with Pando. We’re uniting student designers with women who’ve taken lifelong vows of poverty, urban farmers with social impact entrepreneurs, philosophers, storytellers, producers, educators, activists, and sustainability officers.
We’d love your help!
