Evolving Sustainability

Evolving sustainability can help facilitate both ecological and holistic living becoming mainstream and global. For this to happen, we believe the benefits of merging these should be demonstrated and sustainable solutions incorporating both philosophies should be made easier and more affordable. Our approach to accomplishing this is open source do-it-yourself plans that combine physical sustainability (food, energy, and housing) with holistic and sustainable approaches to business, education, fulfilled living and global contribution.

WHAT IS SUSTAINABILITY

evolving sustainability, negative-waste livingOne Community defines sustainability as the coexistence of humanity with nature and each other in a manner that stands the test of time. We additionally believe that true sustainability has a proactive and regenerative effect that leaves things better for future generations. Holistically, this means encompassing all aspects of the human experience and ecologically addressing all life and living and non-living systems on our planet. The two facets we see as essential to this are physical sustainability and societal sustainability.

Here is what we include in physical sustainability (survival needs):

sustainable food, best practice food, sustainable food systems, aquaponics, walipini, aquapini, zen aquapini, One Community, open source food, free-shared architecture, sustainable living, green living, eco living, living ecologically, for The Highest Good of All, transforming the world, grow your own food, build your own greenhouse in the ground, ground greenhouse, open source architecture, architects of the future, sustainability non-profit, 501c3 organization, sustainable life, water catchment, organic food, food anywhere, maximum food diversity, build your own farmers market, sustainability cooperative, sustainable living group, open source, sustainability nonprofit, free-shared plans, teacher/demonstration village, open source project-launch blueprinting, One Community UpdateHighest Good energy, green energy, off the grid living, eco-living, going green, sustainable energyHighest Good housing, cob construction, earthbag construction, straw bale construction, earthship construction, subterranean construction, sustainable homes, eco-homesHighest Good Lifestyle Considerations Page: Materials | Cleaning Supplies | Lifestyle Practices | Toiletries | Technology | Hardware

The second half of sustainability is built upon the first half and includes the non-essential but equally important financial, educational, and fulfilled living components. These are the social and societal components that go beyond basic needs to help people live lives that are meaningful and vibrant.

Here is what we include in societal sustainability (socioeconomic and personal needs):

One Community school, One Community education, teaching strategies for life, curriculum for life, One Community, transformational education, open source education, free-shared education, eco-education, curriculum for life, strategies of leadership, the ultimate classroom, teaching tools for life, for the highest good of all, Waldorf, Study Technology, Study Tech, Montessori, Reggio, 8 Intelligences, Bloom's Taxonomy, Orff, our children are our future, the future of kids, One Community kids, One Community families, education for life, transformational livingHighest Good for-profit business, Highest Good non-profit business, open source business, One Community entrepreneurial model, making money at One Community, sustainable businessa new way to life, living fulfilled, an enriching life, enriched life, fulfilled life, ascension, evolving consciousness, loving lifeliving and creating for The Highest Good of All, global transformation, making a difference, good for people, good for the planet, good for the economy, good for everyone, the solution to everythingembracing diversity, social equality and justice, celebrating diversity, diversity as a value, celebrating diversity, Highest Good Society, Highest Good SocietyTrue Community, how to build community, facilitating global community, community building, for The Highest Good of All, One Community, a new way to live, a new way of living, open source world, creating world change, One Community, 40+ tips for community making, One Communityrbe, resource based economy, asset based economy, sharing makes sense, RBE One Community, One Community resource based economy, open source future, sustainable world, eco-future, the future of economics

Combining these two areas is what we call an evolution of sustainability that is sustainably sustainable because it simultaneously meets both the physical/tangible sustainability needs and the non-physical/emotional foundational human values.

  • USING SUSTAINABILITY IN DECISION MAKING*

In decision making* at One Community, the core value of “Sustainability” is applied by asking ourselves the following three key questions:

Asking these questions, we create and demonstrate transition strategies that are large-scale implementable and increasingly more desirable than current mainstream approaches, which builds a bridge between the pragmatism of operating in today’s world and the idealism of the future we know is possible for our planet.

* To ensure we are always aligned with our purpose, values, and mission, One Community uses the values as defined by our organization as the compass for all our decision making; we then factor in the diversity of individual perspectives and experiences. We highly recommend this approach because it saves us hundreds, if not thousands, of hours of collaborative decision making time. If you are considering our model as a template for your own creation, we especially recommend you apply this approach too and use, adapt, or completely change the values we’ve presented so you too can create a clear guidance system that aligns with your own organizational/group/individual needs.

 

WHY EVOLVE SUSTAINABILITY

evolving sustainability, negative-waste livingA comprehensive and duplicable world-change model has never been more needed. Right now over 40,000 people starve to death each day (World Health Organization Statistics 2008), 1.6 billion people (about 1/4th of humanity) are without electricity (Millennium Development Goals Report 2007), and over 100 million people worldwide are without a home (2005 UN Commission on Human Rights). Education statistics and statistics on general unhappiness and the rising use of anti-depressants also point to the need for a comprehensive solution. Simultaneously addressing the socio-economic and personal needs of people is important because all of these things are connected.

essentials of sustainability, one community, sustainable planet

We are addressing these needs with our approach because we believe people truly want:

> Comprehensive solutions
> Better, more affordable education
More affordable housing that lasts longer
> Cleaner and healthier food, water, and air
> A way to make a positive difference in the world
> A form of living that is good for them and the Earth
> More time with friends and family, and a more enriching lifestyle

A solution model that addresses all these areas simultaneously has the potential to change the world positively and permanently for everyone. We are here to provide this in the form of do-it-yourself blueprints and templates for individually-implementable modular components and complete village infrastructure. Free-sharing these solutions that are a win for individuals and local communities also addresses the entire planet.

ONE COMMUNITY’S APPROACH TO EVOLVING SUSTAINABILITY

One Community’s approach to evolving sustainability is recognizing that survival needs and socio-economic and personal needs are all interconnected and interdependent. We are building and open source sharing a model to simultaneously include all of these areas and show that this combination reduces living expenses and improves quality of life. Through sustainable and self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities we can teach others how to do this too, and that is what makes them capable of transforming life on this planet for everyone and everything living here.

SUMMARY

evolving sustainability, negative-waste livingOne Community defines sustainability as the coexistence of humanity with nature and each other in a manner that stands the test of time. We create and demonstrate transition strategies that are large-scale implementable and incrementally more desirable than current mainstream approaches, which builds a bridge between pragmatism and idealism. Everything we create is implementable as individual components or a complete holistic-living model. This model simultaneously addresses the socio-economic and personal needs of people in the form of self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities, helping to spread and share this idea of sustainable sustainability across the world. Through these teacher/demonstration hubs we can teach others how to do this too, and that is what makes them capable of transforming life on this planet for everyone and everything living here.
