Comprehensive and sustainable global regeneration will happen as soon as enough people participate. Open source sustainability solutions combining food, energy, and housing with ecocentric models for fulfilled living, education, sustainable economics and earth stewardship can help increase participation by making sustainability easier, more affordable, and demonstrating a way of living that most people will find is better than the way they are living now. Developing this way of life as self-replicating teacher/demonstration hubs is what One Community calls living and creating 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 October 11th, 2015 edition (#133) 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 EDUCATION: @2:00
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:08
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:00
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:37
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @7:13
One Community is helping create comprehensive and sustainable global regeneration 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 transferred the first 50% of the written content for the Creativity Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan is purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Creativity”.
Behind the scenes, we also wrote the first 1/2 of the Emotional States Lesson Plan.
And finally, we completed and added the final 50% of the mindmap for the Recreation and Relaxation Lesson Plan to the webpage:
One Community is helping create comprehensive and sustainable global regeneration 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 added three additional recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan – These recipes are: Asian Brunch Salad, Broccoli “Cheese” Muffins, and Asian Lettuce Wraps.
One Community is helping create comprehensive and sustainable global regeneration 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:
This last week the core team continued what we hope will be the final revision of the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week included more floor construction narrative additions and design updates that you can see here:
We are also creating a new compass base design, and creating an all new below-ground water collection design that eliminates concrete – that’s what you see as hand drawings here. We’d say we’re now 36% complete with this behind-the-scenes revision.
On the Straw Bale Village (Pod 2), Sayonara Batista de Oliveira (4th-year Architecture and Urban Planning Student) finished the first round of beautiful renders of the entire village covering all the key areas of this family focused village design…
…here’s the game room… gym… library… outdoor dining area… kid’s playroom… outdoor play area… central social space…
… and cross sections of the living spaces too.
One Community is helping create comprehensive and sustainable global regeneration 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 Sketchup 3-D for the Duplicable City Center. This week we redid the Dining Dome walk-in freezer and refrigerator access windows. We’d now say we are 57% done with the complete 3D update.
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), continued designing and evolving the Pipe Furniture designs. What you see here are the 3rd generation concept designs for the chairs and tables that will be in the Duplicable City Center library.
We also continued transferring and editing the updates from Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) to the Control Systems and Automation page. You can see this work here and we’d say we are about 60% complete with the total page redesign.
This redesign also included creating this new header image that shows a good overview of what each room’s control systems will include.
Behind the scenes Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student), working under Mike’s guidance, continued developing the Control System connector board. This board will have two headers on it. A Raspberry Pi 2 and an Arduino…cross wired so it will work with both and look something like this:
Mike also began testing some new touchscreen hardware that you can see in this screenshot from our collaborative call…
…and he also began testing the 3-D object recognition hardware as you can see here:
On our website there is also a video of this hardware in action, showing why this is some of the most cutting edge technology in the world right now.
One Community is helping create comprehensive and sustainable global regeneration 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 continued editing and formatting the wonderful work of Oz Czerski (Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law). This included finishing the Open Source and Copyrights and Trademarking tutorial with images, icons, a new reference section and other details.
