A Pando Hubs strategy session was recently held at Los Angeles City Hall with academic, art and design, faith, business, community and government leaders and offered resounding support for our vision of creating a network of Hubs to strengthen the connective tissue between organizations and nurture them. The meeting was hosted by Los Angeles City Councilmember Paul Koretz. John B. Cobb, Jr. chaired.
In addition, local community meetings from the South Bay to the San Fernando Valley, and from Claremont to Venice have been held to further develop the Pando Hubs concept and strategy, with on-the-ground input. Strong support is developing.
Many voted online for our LA2050 bid for initial Pando Hubs underwriting support. While we made a good showing, our friends at Heal the Bay were among those who garnered the most votes. Strong spin-off and collaborative opportunities have arisen for us as a result of this effort, however, which we are currently exploring.
