Co-systemic change models are models that work together to create large-scale change. One Community is creating these models to include sustainable and open source approaches to food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more. We call this living and creating for The Highest Good of All and our goal is global sustainability.

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 June 17, 2018 edition (#273) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’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:
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @7:22
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @8:57
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @10:55
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @11:45
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @12:27
One Community is creating co-systemic change models 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:
Michael Hagler (Senior Graphic Designer and Artist) also finished another round of edits and updates for the Cob Village (Pod 3) and the Recycled Materials Village (Pod 6) pages of the 7-villages book we’re developing, which you can see here:
He also finished another round of final edits to finish this Tree House Village (Pod 7) page that is now live on the open source hub too.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued with the Cob Village (Pod 3) render updates also. Here is update 118 of Dean’s work showing two test renders and a merged version test for the section view of one of the units.
Mihaela “Michelle” Pinzaru (Interior Designer and Architectural Drafter) also completed her 17th week working on the Tree House Village (Pod 7) residential renders. This week she redesigned the furniture, added lights, and produced these test renders.
One Community is creating co-systemic change models 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:
This week the core team continued updating the bedroom renders in the Duplicable City Center to test the new lighting and color schemes. We moved and added furniture to match the updated AutoCAD CAD image, updated the floor to bamboo to match our update materials plan, and added in the control systems details, all shown here.
Dipti Dhondarkar (Electrical Engineer) also continued developing the lighting specifics for the City Center. This is Dipti’s 81st week volunteering on this task and the focus this week was testing what the full-spectrum colored LEDs will look like in the bedrooms.
Haoxuan “Hayes” Lei (Structural Engineer) continued work on the City Center structural engineering by updating the secondary beam spacing in the drawing according to the calculation for second floor and cupola on the fourth floor, as shown here.
Yun Lin (Bridge Design Engineer) also completed his 10th week helping with the beam design and calculation spreadsheet creation for the City Center structural engineering. This week he added last week’s hand calculations to Joist Design spreadsheet, which you can see here.
Anvita Kumari Pandey (Civil Engineer) completed her 9th week helping with the Duplicable City Center Materials and Costs. This week’s focus was further research and updates to the pipe furniture, kitchen equipment, and dining area furniture costs, some of which you can see here.
Last but not least, Dehua Feng (Civil Engineer) completed his 7th week working on the fire suppression and safety systems designs for the City Center. This week he focused on adding, labelling, and testing his designs in AutoCAD 3D, some of which you can see here.
One Community is creating co-systemic change models 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:
This week, the core team continued writing the behind-the-scenes narrative and detailed food rollout plan for the various stages of development. We continued research related to mulching and worms which confirmed our desire to continue with mulch rather than tilling. Also, based on our research, we are choosing to use a combination of worm towers and direct composting into our gardens. The worms compost faster and more effectively resulting in the castings going directly into the soil even without the towers. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is creating co-systemic change models 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 week, the core team finished work on the Learning for Life – Transference of Knowledge resource by writing the rest of the needed content and creating and adding the final graphics. You can see some of this finished work here.
We also updated our Carl Orff Schulwerk Method page with new content and an added resource section with the best of the Orff information and evaluation resources we researched and found.
One Community is creating co-systemic change models 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 week, the Highest Good Network software team consisting of Sowmya Manohar (Software Engineer, Web Developer & Net Application Developer), Shubhra Mittal (Software Delivery Manager), and Swathy Jayaseelan (Software Developer) continued their work on the software. This week they changed the reports layout to center everything in the page, worked on the logic to give data to the bar and pie charts, integrated HGN app with CircleCI to enable automated deployment on Surge, implemented web services and UI logic to enable profile pic image size and types limitation, and added a functional timer that automatically fills the clocked time when a user is creating their time entries.
