Pando Hubs come to life when business-as-usual no longer works. When there’s no solution left but to “think wrong,” as Pando co-founder John Bielenberg puts it, and create the change we want for a different kind of future.
Pando Hubs are places where bold innovations get realized by a community of the most diverse and creative people we can bring together.
Pando Hubs have innovated solutions across LA County to bring “eco” and “homeless” together, break past municipal logjams, get ecological education out of its comfort zone, and deal with activist burnout.
Pando Hubs are sub-policy — not because policy doesn’t matter (it does, hugely), but because we want to make stuff happen without policy entanglements, test ideas quickly, and shorten the time to impact.
Pando Hubs are hyper-local — that is, they focus on specific street addresses where remarkable work is going on.
