Creating a New Earth: One Community Progress Update for the Last Week

One Community is focused on creating a new earth for The Highest Good of AllOpen source project-launch blueprinting and free-sharing a model for self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built all over the world is our path to achieving this. We believe if we make it easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive to enough people, then we can create exponential growth and develop mainstream embracing of these concepts and literally transform life on this planet for everyone. Here is our progress update for the week of April 29th through May 5th, 2013.

CREATING A NEW EARTH:
WEEKLY VIDEO UPDATE #10

CREATING A NEW EARTH: TECHNOLOGY

The A.C.E. (Accountability – Celebration – Expansion) App is an open source and free-shared web-based application One Community has developed for time tracking and objective data collection. We’ve spent over 6 months designing it, 3 months beta testing it, and now we use it daily to log and organize each of our team’s contribution through on-going records covering all aspects of the growth and evolution of our project as an open source project-launch blueprinting and research and development organization. This week we finished our 3rd blog discussing our journey to creating this and our open source portal for the application including access to the source code and details around how we are developing it further to additionally help with:

● Improving sustainable city efficiency
● Welcome Team and Project Team organization and coordination
● Gathering data and running reports on infrastructure build times
● Gathering data and running reports on complete city social and recreation time
● Improving efficiency and communication during large-scale consensus implementation
● Logging and tracking education components of the Education for Life program
● Logging specific work experience and skills data for individual resume use
● Sharing and collaborating on all the above data to make everything easier for others

project management software, open source software, teacher/demonstration village, objective fulfilled living, data gathering for The Highest Good, transforming the planet, global collaboration, working together, tangible time, One Community, ACE Application Open Source Hub, Open Source ACE, ACE ApplicationWe continue to simplify our website and update the content. This week we added the image to the left to all of our open source portals to make it easier for people to more quickly and efficiently browse our site and find the details for duplication of everything we are creating. In adding this to all of our portals we also put the finishing details on The Highest Good of All portal focused on our open source project-launch blueprinting and free-sharing details related to stewardship. Additionally we completed the updating of several of our key website pages including our Sustainable Sustainability Page, Freedom Page, Community Maintenance Page, and the One Community Spirituality Page.

CREATING A NEW EARTH: EARTHBAG VILLAGE PROGRESS

The earthbag village (Pod 1) model continues to progress with our intent to demonstrate housing for over 100 people for less than the cost of a moderately priced house in California. We’re now starting to work on the details of plumbing and water catchment and this has led to some changes in the elevations of the different sections of the village as shown here:

green living, earthbag dome space planning, earthbag homes, earth living, eco-living, super sustainable living, sustainable house designs, earthbag village, architects of the future, redefining living, open source architecture, solution based thinking, affordable housing, eco-artistic housing, sustainability non profit, One Community Update, Pod 1 Update, earthbag construction, earthbag homes, building with earth, $1,500 home, DIY village, creating a sustainable world, green living, sustainable home building, sustainable home design, sustainable house design, sustainable green building, sustainable environmental management, sustainable construction techniques, benefits of sustainable development, challenges of sustainable development

Pod 1 Elevation Updates for Plumbing: Click to Enlarge

These elevation changes will allow us to place all of the plumbing at 5 feet below grade (versus the -12 feet we were expecting in some areas before) and they will also save us about 50% of our planned excavation while reducing labor for earth removal as well.

We also made significant additional progress this last week on the labor projections, materials details, and tools and equipment details for this village model as well as to the Planting Details page for the Tropical Atrium.

CREATING A NEW EARTH: SEGO CENTER CITY HUB PROGRESS

The One Community SEGO Center City Hub is a foundational component of the One Community duplicable teacher/demonstration community, village, and city model purposed to provide an open source and duplicable city center, demonstrate cutting-edge sustainability, to function as a community, village, or city recreation center, dining hall, and laundry facility, and to offer a green-luxury option to donors, major eco-investors, VIPs, or anyone else that might not feel like they are initially ready to stay in one of our earthbagor straw bale hand-constructed homes. Because it replaces individual kitchens, laundry rooms, and living rooms for residents, the SEGO Center also saves significant resources. We’re now working on 3D for this structure. Here’s the most recent export:

"In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model.

You create a new model and make the old one obsolete. That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called."
