Let’s build sustainable communities as a solution to unemployment. Automation, artificial intelligence, and self-driving cars are replacing manufacturing jobs, customer service jobs, and transportation jobs. One Community is open sourcing the foundations for teacher/demonstration hubs that will provide sustainable alternatives for the people no longer needed in these jobs. These alternatives will be more rewarding, more fun, and require less time and energy so people can work less and spend more time doing other things instead.

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 September 15th, 2019 edition (#338) 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: @8:04
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @9:07
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @10:43
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @11:38
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @12:43
One Community is creating a foundation for communities as a solution to unemployment using Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:
This week the core team ran energy-usage calculations and researched the costs of running our top five hand dryers for 1000 cycles. We then updated the most sustainable hand dryer options page to reflect what we learned. This led to updated text and changing the order of our top 3 recommendations, which you can see here.
Brianna Olsen (Sustainability Researcher) also completed her 13th week as a member of the team. This week she finished the written content additions for the most sustainable faucet options updates. You can see some of this work here.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) completed his 66th week developing the Murphy bed instructions. This week’s focus was redoing the parts numbers and adding new page numbers for the Clothing and Storage area shown here.
One Community is creating a foundation for communities as a solution to unemployment using 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 returned to creating the Most Sustainable Adhesives page. This week we created the resources section, AFM Safecoat section, and Bona® sections shown here. We’d say this brings this page to 90% complete.
Ron Huang (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 19th week working on the Energy Modeling for our LEED Platinum certification and City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week he tested various air-to-water and central heat pump systems in EneryPlus. The former looks more promising than the later in terms of energy performance. You can see some of this work here.
Sneha Dongre (Structural Engineer) also continued with her 24th week helping with the Duplicable City Center structural details. This week she started working with SAP 2000 by continuing the work of creating poly-areas for the floors and roofs. She also identified and continued fixing areas that are still missing in AutoCAD.
Kimya Azadmard (Senior Plumbing Engineer) additionally continued with his 5th week as a member of the team. Kimya’s focus this week was creating individual Architectural floor plan reference files based on the latest Mater floor plan and setting each one with a new 0,0 coordinate for proper overlapping.
One Community is creating a foundation for communities as a solution to unemployment using 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 researched and designed the goat feeding and water stations. We designed the stations in SketchUp 3D using trash cans and barrels. You can see these designs on the top row and some of the source research below.
And the core team completed the Site Analysis and Assessment sections for the Open Source Permaculture Design page. These new sections include fences, soil conditions, planting, animals and economy. You can see some of this behind-the-scenes work here.
One Community is creating a foundation for communities as a solution to unemployment using 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 component of One Community is about 95% complete with only the Open Source School Licensing and Ultimate Classroom construction and assembly details remaining to be finished. We’ll report on the final two elements to be finished as we develop them.
With over 8 years of work invested in the process, the sections below are all complete until we move onto the property and continue the development and open sourcing process with teachers and students – a development process that is built directly into the structure of the education program and everything else we’re creating too:
One Community is creating a foundation for communities as a solution to unemployment using 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 core team working with Brian Gilb (Project Management Professional – PMP) created the Work Breakdown Structure analysis charts shown here for the The Highest Good Network and also edited and simplified our Policies and Procedures and Tangible Contribution pages.
Emilio Nájera (Digital Marketer) also continued with his 45th week as part of the marketing team. This week he finished research and creation of the campaign for the new Most Sustainable Hand Dryers page.
