Many people say they want a more sustainable planet and a better quality of life for themselves and others, but how does a person actually achieve this? What does this mean for different people and how do we provide for the diversity of different ideas different people have?
Over 15 years of research and planning have gone into designing an answer called “One Community.” It is our belief that humanity is inherently empathic and desiring to do the right thing for themselves, the earth, and their fellow humans. We also feel the primary barrier for being living examples of this is people’s fear of not being able to meet their own foundational needs. With this in mind, One Community has evolved as a growing team of over 50 pioneers, partners, and consultants designing a path to far exceed the foundational needs of people while also helping the entire human organism, our planet, and all life on it.
We’re passionate because we see just one working model that provides the right path for duplication as having the ability to become self-replicating. Over a period of a few decades, exponential growth of the model has the potential to transform life on this planet for everyone. The One Community foundations we are focusing on to facilitate this are:
The future we envision with a creation like One Community is a world of collaboration for The Highest Good of All built from a global cooperative of self-sustainable teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities. These teacher/demonstration hubs will demonstrate people living lives that include more time to do the things they love to do and little or no bills because they are built on ultra-affordable and sustainable infrastructure. The affordability of the lifestyle coupled with an internal culture of working together to create an enhanced and more fulfilling lifestyle are what we see these teacher/demonstration hubs purposed primarily to teach and share. Our goal is to help lead and organize the initial creation of these through a working example providing an open source archive of tools, tutorial, and resources for duplication of all aspects including food infrastructure, energy infrastructure, housing infrastructure, an education model, a social architecture and recreation model, a self-governance strategy, a functioning resource based economy, earth regenerative practices, for-profit and non-profit business infrastructure, and more. Combining these things in one place will create a place we see people wanting to visit and duplicate.
|The duplicable food infrastructure is designed to produce food that is grown on site so it is fresh, grown without chemicals so it is organic, and more diverse than what people find in the grocery store because it is grown as part of an open source botanical garden model.|
|The duplicable energy infrastructure is designed to eliminate power bills, be a source of revenue for those still connected to the grid, and built to evolve and expand with the evolution and expansion of new technologies too.|
|The duplicable housing infrastructure is designed to be do-it-yourself construction with the help of our blueprints and open source resources, more affordable because of the sustainable materials we use and the partnerships we are building, and last longer than traditional homes.|
|The duplicable education model is designed to be for all ages, built to meet or exceed traditional educational standards, and as an open source global collaboration like everything else so that it is constantly evolving and improving.|
|The duplicable social architecture and recreation model is designed to provide onsite activity diversity that is superior to most metropolitan areas, more time to enjoy these activities, and built-in structures for maintaining and evolving it all.|
|The duplicable self-governance strategy is designed to be efficient, horizontal, and inclusive of all members.|
|The duplicable resource based economy is designed to demonstrate a culture of collaboration, save money and resources, and provide more access to all the things people want.|
|The duplicable earth regenerative practices are designed to help promote plant and animal diversity, share plant, animal, and earth regenerative and supportive resources, and increase habitat.|
|The duplicable for-profit and non-profit business infrastructure is designed to function for The Highest Good of All, help make the communities, villages, and cities profitable for their inhabitants and/or investors, and to further share and spread the teacher/demonstration model globally.|
One Community is everything above and more and it is being designed to be duplicated as either individual components or complete teacher/demonstration hubs that help create more teacher/demonstration hubs. It is all open source so people can take and use what they want, how they want, without limitations of copyright or patents of any kind. Most importantly, it is being created so people can participate in a diversity of ways to make this happen faster either through partnership, membership, or even just internet participation.
This is what One Community is creating and we are already also preparing for the next step which is supporting this duplication and further growing the global open source archive. Because our blueprint is focused on self-propagation, and not just establishing One Community, we are also building the marketing and collaboration infrastructure to support the entire first wave of teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities. We believe a broad diversity of models will be launched almost simultaneously with One Community and we are growing our marketing engine to support these communities. We are also months into developing the necessary software to coordinate our internal efforts with the internal efforts of other communities so we can more efficiently work together to provide even more open source blueprints, tools, tutorials, resources, and data.
The 100% unpaid volunteer One Community team sees no higher purpose than creating this new life model for a new world. We want this and we believe other people want it to. Creating it now, we are excited to already see people’s desire increasing as we demonstrate even more benefits for them, their communities, and the planet. These benefits include personal and social benefits, financial benefits, ecological benefits, and more. Most importantly, everything we are doing is being created with a philosophy and dedicated consciousness for The Highest Good of All. One of our biggest expressions of this is open source creation of everything we know is necessary for duplication of all we do as either individual components or as complete teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities. In this way, people can use what they want and not use what they don’t want, and we see any aspect of One Community that people choose to duplicate as still moving humanity and our planet in the right direction.
