Bold new creative thinking can create a world that is sustainable and works for everyone. One Community is leading the facilitation of this through open source and free-shared teacher/demonstration hub creation. These hubs will start with One Community and combine replicable solutions for food, energy, housing, education, economics, fulfilled living and earth stewardship, all for The Highest Good of All:

One Community’s physical location will forward this movement as the first of many self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world. This is the January 9th, 2015 edition (#97) of our weekly progress update detailing the previous week’s development and accomplishments:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:

One Community is forwarding bold new creative thinking through Highest Good education that is for all ages, applicable in any environment, adaptable to individual needs, far exceeds traditional education standards, and more fun for both the teachers and the students:
This last week the core team created the final 50% of the lesson plan mindmap for the lesson with the central theme of “Dreams”. You can see that here showing a beautiful graphic overview of how to teach all subjects, to any learning level, in any learning environment using this central theme of “Dreams”:
To go along with this, we also finished the final 50% of the Dreams Lesson Plan webpage that contains the complete lesson plan specifics associated with this mindmap. Check it out and use the links on the page to share your own ideas to make it even better.
Also, we finished the first 20% of the new Lesson Plans How-to purposed to teach the specifics of how each of these lesson plans is meant to be used. When complete, this new page will give a complete and detailed example of exactly how to combine all the components of any of the lesson plans for an all-subject week-long lesson plan for any age, learning level, and environment:
One Community is forwarding bold new creative thinking through Highest Good food that is more diverse, more nutritious, locally grown and sustainable, and part of our open source botanical garden model to support and share bio-diversity:
We also did a complete reformatting of the the Large-scale Gardening open source portal, added more resources there, and added several new educational images as well. You can see some of these here and visit the page for more details:
One Community is forwarding bold new creative thinking through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:
Behind the scenes we finished another 25% of the earthdome window and door framing descriptions Draft A. This brings us to 75% complete there to go with the 75% we have complete for the Skethcup 3-D aspects of this.
Also behind the scenes, we finished about 70% of the video production outline for all the components of the upcoming crowdfunding campaign.
In addition to this, Scott Thomas and his Shadow Ridge Signature Architecture Program finished what we think will be the final major revision of the shower and toilet domes for the Earthbag Village. The main change here is the toilet domes being reconfigured to allow for two urinals on the men’s side while still being ADA compliant:
Dave Walen (Architectural Drafter & Designer and owner of Dave Philip Walen Design) also lowered the planting beds and continued working on the redesign of the central area of the Straw Bale Village (Pod 2):
One Community is forwarding bold new creative thinking through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, provide laundry for over 300 people, is beautiful, spacious, and saves resources, money, and space:
Behind the scenes our mechanical engineer also finished what he was able to complete of the structural calculations for the Duplicable City Center cupola. We are now continuing our search for a structural engineer to complete the final calculations.
One Community is forwarding bold new creative thinking through a Highest Good society approach to living that is founded on fulfilled living, the study of meeting human needs, Community, and making a difference in the world:
This last week the core team created new social media imagery and updated and featured our One Community Overview page, our Open Source Guide to 3-D Creation with Sketchup Plants page, and our Highest Good Network page that talks about the custom and open source software we use and are evolving for complete city management and collaborative evolution. Here are the new social media images, click them for the related pages:
We also welcomed Emily’s Quotes to our Tsū family – continuing to grow our new favorite social media network, the network that pays its users 90% of its ad revenue and doesn’t censor our content like Facebook does. Join us there, it’s free!
