Creating a global sustainability collaborative makes sense if our intent is a truly sustainable planet for all people everywhere. Open source and free-shared sustainable approaches to food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, and global stewardship practices can stimulate global collaboration and innovation and forward this goal and all these areas 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 February 26th, 2017 edition (#205) 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: @3:16
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @3:54
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @6:53
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @8:33
One Community is creating a global sustainability collaborative 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 all of the written content for the Fulfilled Living 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 “Fulfilled Living”.
Behind the scenes, we completed 100% of the written part of the Consensus and Decision Making Lesson Plan.
We also completed the first 25% of the mindmap for the Play Lesson Plan and added the theme images to the play lesson plan page.
In addition, the core team continued creation of renders for The Ultimate Classroom. We updated the windows, tables and chairs for the blue, indigo and red room, added items to the orange room, and rendered the entry doorway area.
One Community is creating a global sustainability collaborative 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:
One Community is creating a global sustainability collaborative 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 week the core team created easier to read and website optimized versions of all the images needed for the standardized AutoCAD layers and line-weights template and tutorial.
Alena Thompson (Mechanical Engineer) completed her 3rd week helping with the Net-zero Communal Bathroom Designs. This week she researched filtration options and worked out the details necessary to design the barrel collection, storage, and filtration system shown here.
Christian Ojeda (Mechatronic Engineer) completed his 4th week helping with the heat-recycling Communal Eco-shower designs. This week’s focus was researching a new design for the heat exchanger and updating the sink designs with a new location for the point-of-use electric water heater.
Adrienne Gould-Choquette (Mechanical Engineer) also finished her 10th week helping create the standardized AutoCAD layers and line-weights template and tutorial. This week’s focus was more integration of feedback and writing all the content you see here for the Tips and Tricks section of the tutorial.
Fernando Remolina (Industrial Engineer specializing in Project Management) continued with his 13th week of managing the Vermiculture Bathroom development with the 9th week of help from Lin Xu (Mechanical Engineering Student). This week’s focus, as shown here, was on more updates and design explorations for the removable compost receptacle attachments.
And Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer), continued helping us create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 57 of Dean’s work developing this progression of 30 images for the room lighting for the Eastside living spaces:
…. and this Cob Village – Inside South Wing Looking North view.
Hamilton Mateca (AutoCAD and Revit Drafter and Designer) also finished his 32nd week helping with the Compressed Earth Block Village (Pod 4) design details. This week’s focus was more render tests and texture updates for the kitchen, main entry, and living spaces:
….and creation of this final render of the main entryway looking Southeast.
Aparna Tandon (Architect) additionally continued her work on the Compressed Earth Block Village external elements. What you see here is her 17th week of work, focusing on continuing the development of the layout and landscaping details in front of the structure.
One Community is creating a global sustainability collaborative 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 Dipti Dhondarkar, (Electrical Engineer) continued with her 28th week of work on the lighting specifics for the City Center. This week’s focus was continuing the process of learning how to use the Dialux software, modeling the City Center Social Dome bathrooms, and continuing lighting testing with different floor and wall colors.
Haoxuan “Hayes” Lei (Structural Engineer) and Shuna Ni (Masters of Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering PhD) also continued their work on the City Center structural engineering. This week’s focus was continuing the roof designs and working out more details for the column flange and weight specifics, as shown here.
Ramya Vudi (Electrical Engineer) and Shubham Agrawal (Electrical Engineer) continued their work on the energy infrastructure for the City Center. What you see here are a couple photos from the weekly collaborative calls with Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant and this week’s research into what is needed to connect to and sell solar power back to the grid.
And Renan Dantas (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 9th week working on the Duplicable City Center AutoCAD updates. This week’s focus was continuing to integrate the new dome geometry into the Master File and simplification and standardization of the Faster File layers.
One Community is creating a global sustainability collaborative 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 finished another several rounds of developing the new Highest Good education video. What you see in the background here is the most recently developed and tested video and graphics.
Hannah Gibbs (Web Developer) also completed her 5th week of helping develop the Taxes and Sustainable Community Building page. This week’s focus was creating and updating the site with more new graphics and formatting updates so everything looks good on phones too.
