Bio-social progress is sustainable progress built on a foundation of cooperative social and ecological consciousness. If enough of us participate, humanity can pass the tipping point necessary to establish ourselves as a sustainable civilization. This will benefit all life on our shared planet and One Community is open sourcing the resources we feel are most needed and helpful in achieving this.

"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."
