WHERE CAN THE SMALLEST CHANGES MAKE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE?
Since our inception, our ProduceAthons have been at the forefront of challenging the status quo. A ProduceAthon is a 72-Hour lab that pushes the limits of creatives, changemakers, and thought leaders in building movements and stories that inspire, activate, and unite people in support of brands and causes that matter. Our mission is to reprogram the unique vantage points of people, brands, and causes for what’s possible in a world hardwired for status quo.
PRODUCELA2050: 15 CREATIVES - 72 HOURS - 5 STORIES
#ProduceLA2050 is an LA2050 themed ProduceAthon in partnership with Goldhirsh Foundation to support and empower 5 Los Angeles based change-makers with uniquely customized stories that maximize their impact and reach.
Building a better future for Angelenos, shaped by Angelenos, depends on shared vision and change-makers dedicated to driving and tracking progress towards that vision. The condition of Los Angeles today matters because who we are and how we live now sets us on a course for who we will be and how we will live tomorrow. The LA2050 reports were created for this purpose – to help influence LA2050’s activities in 2015 and beyond.
We believe stories of impact and change deserve attention, appreciation, and support. That’s why Impact Rising and Goldhirsh Foundation have teamed up for #ProduceLA2050 to celebrate five of LA's rising star social enterprises with custom stories developed by our ProduceLA2050 elite teams.
