Who we are
PANDA’s mission is to be a leading independent organisation promoting major shifts towards greater human agency and flourishing societies through multidisciplinary research, sense-making and innovation fit for real-world complexities.
PANDA was established in April 2020 by a group of multidisciplinary professionals, who perceived the global reaction to Covid - from lockdowns to mandates - as overwrought and damaging to the point of causing a great tear in the fabric of society. PANDA is a politically and economically independent organisation that has sought to develop broad rational explanations and test them against international data, while informing the public and media.
PANDA’s vision is of flourishing societies that value individual sovereignty, where the free exchange of ideas is encouraged and decentralised innovation is fostered.
PANDA’s collective of scientists, actuaries, economists, data scientists, statisticians, medical professionals, lawyers, engineers and businesspeople now include professionals from across the world, contributing perspectives from their experiences in many different countries.
