Pando Days ‘21 Premiere Recap
Pando Days ‘21 premiere week held back-to-back events showcasing eleven projects from ten Southland colleges and universities focused on building County sustainability. Schools dedicated full courses, studios, or labs over the fall term and delivered results over four days in a series of online events beginning December 6. More than 150 people attended.
This year’s Pando Days brought to life some amazing projects across four categories of sustainability: Transportation, Shelter, Community, and Open Call/Food. School teams were given 10 minutes apiece for their premiere week presentations, followed by 5 minutes of Q&A with a member of the CSO (Chief Sustainability Officer) Taskforce.
Pando Days projects bring big ideas down to Earth for practical real-world impact. A panel of distinguished judges is assessing them now according to four criteria:
● Effectiveness in meeting LA County sustainability goals, 25%
● Responsiveness to the needs of community stakeholders, 25%
● Innovation and creativity, 25%
● Implementation strategy and practical viability, 25%
Winners will be announced at the Finale, Sunday, Jan. 16, 11:00 a.m.
