Achieving Earth’s Ecological Potential – One Community Weekly Progress Update #237

Achieving Earth’s Ecological Potential – One Community Weekly Progress Update #237

Humanity is capable of achieving Earth’s ecological potential. One Community thinks the path to accomplishing this is a global cooperative of teacher/demonstration hubs working together to open source, evolve, and share sustainable approaches to all foundational aspects of living. The designs we’re developing cover food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more.
