WHAT ONE COMMUNITY IS CREATING
One Community is creating open source and free-shared resource-solutions for Highest Good food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economics design, social architecture, fulfilled living, stewardship practices and more. The resources we are creating can be implemented as individual components or complete teacher/demonstration hubs intentionally purposed to spin-off additional teacher/demonstration hubs as awareness and knowledge grow.
One Community is being designed as the first of these hubs, functioning as an experiential learning model that facilitates mass participation in simultaneously addressing the most pressing challenges of our species through:
- A duplicable model solution that creates additional solution creating models
- Building 7 completely different duplicable self-sufficient village/city prototypes
- Becoming the #1 provider in the world of open source and free-shared solutions
- Redefining sustainability both as an open source and a Highest Good of All industry
- Evolving and expanding ALL aspects of comprehensively sustainable infrastructure and living
By showing people the individual benefits this approach provides, and making it easy enough, affordable enough, and helping others to replicate it, we will facilitate positive and permanent global change that will benefit all life on our planet. These images give a nice visual overview of the breadth and scope of our design work and plans:
WHY ONE COMMUNITY IS CREATING THIS
One Community’s self-replicating-hub model is capable of creating a sustainable planet within 30 years. We imagine a world where all of the hubs being created collaborate with one another, sharing ideas, resources, networking, and working together to heal the planet and transform the global lifestyle to a more enjoyable, fulfilling, healthy, and sustainable one. This will positively impact every living thing, begin regenerating all aspects of our ecosystem, provide more time/resources for all people, and ultimately transition humanity to a new Golden Age of cooperation for all. The specifics of how we are accomplishing this can be found on the One Community Methodology Page. Here are the replication numbers showing what is possible:
Regardless of whether or not we achieve our ultimate goal of global transformation, a self-replicating teacher/demonstration model like this will take a relatively short period of time to positively affect millions while inspiring millions more. For One Community residents (the Pioneer Team), the idea of creating and sharing the social and recreational experience with visitors is also fun, exciting, fulfilling, and an additional reason why we are creating this.
We are creating blueprints for everything that is needed to build a comprehensively sustainable society, so our website is huge. Here is our sitemap. To simplify navigation of our website, we’ve included below a brief list of links with descriptions covering the main pages and open source hubs.

VISION & VALUES
|At One Community our vision is leading the creation of a New Golden Age of cooperation, collaboration, innovation, creativity, peace, and increased happiness for the entire human species by building a self-replicating bridge between idealism and pragmatism.|
4-PHASE GLOBAL STRATEGY
Our Global Strategy Page outlines our 4-phase model for global transformation: Phase I: Demonstrating a Better Way, Phase II: Open Source Project-Launch Blueprinting, Phase III: Inviting the World to Participate, Phase IV: Universal Appeal and Global Expansion.
HIGHEST GOOD OF ALL
Thinking and creating for The Highest Good of All is our #1 value and our guide for every decision One Community makes. We define this approach as non-dogmatic and specifically good for people, business, and the planet simultaneously.
OPEN SOURCE BLUEPRINTS
|One Community is open source project-launch blueprinting and free-sharing everything needed to create comprehensive sustainability and build 7 different sustainable village prototypes. See the Open Source section below for more details.|
It IS possible to create a completely sustainable civilization. Our Sustainable Sustainability Page discusses the essential foundations of sustainability and our approach for going beyond these essentials to include emotional sustainability and other elements.
|The Solution-creating Solutions Page covers how One Community is creating models for solutions that create solutions through demonstration, inspiring people, designing and creating for The Highest Good of All, and by open source sharing everything needed for replication.|

WHAT WE ARE OPEN SOURCE PROJECT-LAUNCH BLUEPRINTING
|Our duplicable food infrastructure is designed to produce food that is produced 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 our open source botanical garden model.|
|Our 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 grow with the evolution and expansion of new technologies too.|
|Our 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 longer lasting than traditional homes.|
|Our duplicable education model is designed for all ages, built to exceed traditional educational standards, and modifiable for application in a homeschooling environment, a traditional schooling environment, or for use as a complete community-based private schooling program.|
|Our 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.|
|Our duplicable social architecture and recreation model is designed to provide on-site activity diversity that is superior to most metropolitan areas. Additionally, we will have more time to enjoy these activities and built-in structures for maintaining and evolving it all.|
|Our duplicable stewardship practices are good for people, the planet, and financial viability. They include everything from lifestyle considerations, to earth regenerative practices, resource based economy implementation, and more.|

|VISIT THE OVERVIEW HUBS FOR MUCH MORE|
One Community sees the issues of the world as interdependent and interconnected. To address them simultaneously, we are open-source blueprinting a more advanced standard of living for all by designing holistic, environmentally regenerative, self-sustaining, adaptable solutions for food, energy, housing, education, economics, and society. We will model these within a comprehensive “village/city” which will be built in the southwestern U.S. This teacher/demonstration hub will be a place people can experience and then duplicate with our open source blueprints: creating a model solution that creates additional solution creating models.
Q: What sets One Community apart from similar projects?
One Community’s open source project-launch blueprinting strategy and the fact that we are open sourcing and addressing ALL elements of society simultaneously are a combination unique to our organization. Together these will help others duplicate what we do and create self-propagating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities capable of positively impacting every single person on this planet within one generation.
Q: What sets One Community’s open source goals apart from similar projects?
We are already “walking our talk” through the comprehensive nature and detail of everything we are open source project-launch blueprinting, We also offer free use of our business plan, all website content, our back office structure, and the continuing development of two additional websites:
- Ethosolutions.org :: Supporting any unarguably forward thinking product, idea, or organization by featuring them as “ethosolutions” through the creation of promotional and supportive web pages, helping everyone build a better world.
- PeoplesAgenda21.com :: A forty-chapter open source sustainability website we have built to comprehensively share sustainability action items. It provides steps that anyone can take to support sustainability covering everything from protecting the atmosphere to sustainable livelihoods to promoting human health, biotechnology management, and more.
Q: What is the specific One Community short-term goal?
- To become a world leader in global-solution information content within 6 months of moving onto the property as detailed in our open source project-launch blueprinting page.
- To expand within 5 years to a community of 200 full-time residents producing ongoing tools, resources, and tutorials while hosting thousands of annual visitors as outlined in our long-term vision page.
- To define the global-solution industry itself as an open source industry, expanding mainstream awareness, appeal, and desire for comprehensive sustainability by demonstrating and sharing a more attractive and fulfilling way of living that people can have if they desire to create it also.
- To teach as many people as possible to duplicate and/or evolve our global transformation model.
Q: What is the ultimate One Community long-term goal?
To transform our world into a sustainable and happier one through teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built all over the world. We will work with these hubs as our open source partners and fellow leaders of the open source, Highest Good of All, and sustainable planet movement leading to a New Golden Age of cooperation, collaboration, innovation, creativity, sustainable living, and increased happiness for the entire human organism.
Q: How is One Community funded?
We are still seeking funding. Please see our Funding Related Details Page.

Q: How far is One Community in the creation process?
Q: If you are giving everything away through open source, how do you intend to make money?
Our model is designed to prosper specifically because we are giving everything away through open source project-launch blueprinting. We accomplish this through eco-toursim marketed with the open source infrastructure we have already created and other supported revenue streams outlined on our revenue streams page. All of this further promotes our model of spreading sustainability and actively promoting and distributing even more open source blueprints for duplication by as many people as possible.
