Pando innovates solutions and practical plans to meet LA’s ambitious sustainability goals.

We unite the people who care most about the future of Los Angeles. Focus them on the right things. And motivate them. With passion.

All of our programs, ongoing and single events, are designed to implement Los Angeles County’s social and environmental plan, OurCounty LA.

Ongoing programs
These extend over successive years for higher ed, youth, professional development, and interfaith. The programs represent different models of our accelerator process in action.
