Cooperative Community Building – One Community Weekly Progress Update #244

youtube preview image blog 244

Cooperative community building is one path to spreading and evolving sustainability. We think the ultimate expression of this is cooperative communities that incorporate,  open-source share, and invite people to participate in sustainable approaches to the foundations of foodenergy, and housing while also including sustainable and open source approaches to educationeconomicssocial architecturefulfilled living, and global stewardship practices too. With the goal for a positive and permanent shift to global sustainability, One Community calls this living and creating for The Highest Good of All.
