For a true democracy to work, ordinary citizens must come together to develop creative, local solutions to the problems in their communities. Pando Projects offers a digital platform to make this local activism as simple and efficient as possible. We support emerging leaders who possess ideas for projects that can be executed within one year for up to $5,000. We provide project mentorship to help them refine their strategy and an online workspace with the tools they need to execute their vision. Our goal is to help thousands of Americans bring their ideas to fruition through projects that help create a better world.
Pando is about to launch its pilot with 15 projects in New York, which you can read about here: http://tiny.cc/yiuwy. The MacArthur Foundation has called Pando, “the new face of activism” and FastCompany wrote, “Pando makes meaningful ideas more executable and brainpower more accessible... and Millennials are demonstrating an inspiring willingness to assume responsibility for the change they want to see in the world.” We are now building a platform to support projects across the United States, inspiring citizens to action, empowering the next generation of socially conscious leaders, and nurturing innovative solutions to the problems facing our planet.
