Designs of the future – One Community Weekly Progress Update #23

create the future, the future is ours to create, One CommunityOne Community believes the designs of the future will be more cost-effective, last longer, and be built from resources that are readily available. We are operating a non-profit and for The Highest Good of All sustainability think tank to demonstrate and build 7 different communal living mini-village models to demonstrate this. They will each contain 15-100 residences and function as examples and prototypes for self-sufficient and duplicable teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world.

Our open source creation includes the Highest Good foodenergy, and housing, the Highest Good for-profit and non-profit business modelsan education modela Highest Good society modelresource-based economy implementation, and more. Most importantly, it is designed to provide a standard of living and experience of life itself that we feel most will consider far superior to what they are experiencing now. Here is our progress update (#23) covering our accomplishments for the week of July 29th, 2013.

The zen aquapini (zenapini) designs will represent two very different internal environments. Zenapini #1 will be the Cloud Forest House. This ecosystem is characterized by high humidity (50-80%) and cooler temperatures than tropical regions (55-80 degrees F). This week we completed the selection and mapping of all the plants that will be added to this structure. We’ll add these plants to the designs of the future here and update the design drawing over the next couple of weeks.

The earthbag architecture village (Pod 1) is the first of the seven different sustainable village models in the designs of the future to be built because we believe it will be the most affordable and easy to duplicate. Its purpose from a future design perspective is maximally affordable housing. This week we’ve finished up to about the 2/3rds point for the cost analysis details that we will be posting on the Earthbag Village Materials Costs Page as soon as they are complete and we’ve double-checked all the details.

The straw bale construction village (Pod 2) is a teacher/demonstration community, village, and city model purposed for open source project-launch blueprinting and building modularly expandable sustainable housing designs for the future. One Community will begin building this village as soon as the earthbag village (Pod 1) is complete and we just brought on a partner (details coming soon) that has begun working on putting this village into 3D for us.

OVERVIEW       ●       LOCATION       ●       FUNDING






One Community is creating designs of the future for a place to grow together and change the world together. We are creating a space that helps each other live in integrity with each other and the planet as we strive to be the greatest versions of ourselves. We do this by harmoniously respecting each other, nature, and the rest of our one shared planet.

Our goal is to demonstrate what we feel is the most sustainable, healthy, and fun environment we can create. A place based on compassion, kindness, and collaboration. This replicable community will serve as an example of what is possible.

Throughout our design process, we are open-sourcing and free-sharing everything needed for construction and replication. This includes what we call “Highest Good” approaches to foodenergyhousingeducationfor-profit and non-profit economics designsocial architecturefulfilled livingstewardship practices, and more. We are creating designs of the future with these resources for implementation as individual components or complete developments called teacher/demonstration hubs. These hubs will help launch additional hubs as awareness and knowledge grow.


One Community will be the first teacher/demonstration hub of these designs of the future. It will function as an experiential learning model that facilitates mass participation to address humanity’s most pressing challenges through a replicable model for expansion, building seven self-sufficient village/city prototypes, becoming the world leader in open-source sustainability solutions, and evolving and expanding ALL aspects of sustainable living.


The One Community self-replicating model is capable of creating designs of the future within 30 years. We will achieve this by establishing successful teacher/demonstration hubs on every continent. Villages include designs appropriate for each of the five main types of climates. They also include options for even the most challenged economies. These hubs will collaborate with one another, share ideas, resources, and work together as a network to heal the planet. They will also transform the global lifestyle to a more enjoyable, fulfilling, healthy, and sustainable one.

The specifics of how One Community is accomplishing this can be found on the One Community Solution Model to Create Solution-creating Models Page. Research supporting and showing the benefits of a model like this can be found on our Research and Resources Articles Archive.

Even if we don’t achieve our ultimate goal of global transformation, a self-replicating teacher/demonstration model like this will take a relatively short period of time to positively affect millions while inspiring millions more.  For One Community residents (the Pioneer Team), the idea of creating designs of the future and sharing the social and recreational experience with visitors is also fun, exciting, fulfilling, and an additional reason why we are creating these designs of the future.


One Community’s four-phase strategy for the creation of solution models that create solution creating models uses open source blueprints for duplication that simultaneously address all aspects of the human experience (food, energy, housing, education, social inequality and injustice, fulfilled living, etc.). We see these areas as interdependent and requiring a comprehensive solution if humanity is to move ecologically, socially, economically, and permanently towards a truly sustainable future for everyone.

Our open source model and blueprints engage and inspire people while simultaneously making sustainable living more affordable and easy to replicate in these designs of the future. By free-sharing the step-by-step plans people need for duplication, inviting people to participate, and demonstrating sustainable teacher/demonstration hubs as a more desirable way of living, the model will predictably expand on its own.

It is this approach we see uniting the world and leading to a new Golden Age for humanity. While we understand that not everyone believes designs of the future are even possible, we are nonetheless bringing together all those who do see this as possible as the non-profit think tank of forward-thinking individuals willing to design, build, and open source project-launch blueprint and free-share it for The Highest Good of All.


One Community is open source sharing an evolution of sustainable living that addresses the complete human experience. We are doing this because we see the solutions for global food, housing, energy, education, social inequality, ethical business practices, earth regenerative practices, and a desire for a more fulfilling living experience as inseparably interconnected. As a comprehensive solution, we are addressing all these areas simultaneously and open source free-sharing everything needed for individual duplication and/or duplication as complete self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world in designs of the future.

As we address and open source share these areas we will establish a living example of the first teacher/demonstration village purposed to teach others. To maximally facilitate duplication, One Community will provide seven duplicable examples and function indefinitely as a place people can visit and a non-profit and open source think tank continuing to further evolve and share solutions in all of the above areas and more. We will also provide hands-on experience and training. Most importantly, growing upon our sustainable foundation, we will endlessly make this comprehensive solution even more widely known and globally accessible, understandable and diversely duplicable, and inspiring and desirable as a model worth duplicating.


The more people that are inspired and desiring for themselves what it is that One Community creates, the more demand there will be for spreading the One Community model. This leads to the directing of financial resources and resourceful people where we believe they are needed most: the establishment of additional sustainable communities around the world. We also feel this duplication will specifically happen quickly internationally due to the affordability of overseas land, less restrictive building environments, and the spirit of adventure in many people who really desire to make a difference for those who need it most.

To meet the increasing demand for sustainability that we are contributing to, we are coordinating with manufacturers, education institutions, individuals, and vendors for designs of the future. This is also part of this model to help the world. Its purpose is to facilitate more engagement in designs of the future and industries, produce the absolute best possible consumer value, and the most convenient delivery of goods and methodologies for building sustainable living communities and sustainable living components.

This means we not only provide education and increase needed sustainability resources, but we also address the underlying roadblocks to designs of the future by decreasing the cost and simultaneously increasing the demand and generating financial support for global sustainability, philanthropy, and humanitarian movements and organizations.

As demand increases, so too will the ways to participate in designs of the future. Right now people are participating as consultants or partners donating time to our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and others are more involved as Pioneers of the core team that will be moving to the property. We also have options for people to just follow our progress or participate through internet contribution.

Once the supportive physical infrastructure is about 30% developed, One Community will be ready to additionally expand what we offer to include scholarships, free weekend learning groups, core team members choosing to travel abroad to help others get established too, handling the marketing for all similar models operating for The Highest Good of All, and hosting classes and other sponsored events to promote and demonstrate additional methodologies.

We also imagine the high likelihood that our organization will become a foundation that can be trusted as the donation point for the distribution of monies to help others establish this model of designs of the future.


One Community is building solution-creating models, designs of the future designed to create additional solution-creating models to specifically facilitate exponential and sustainable global teacher/demonstration village growth. The following four phases of the strategy we are applying are designed to support each other and accelerate the process globally:

Phase I: Demonstrating a Better Way

We are designing One Community to demonstrate an experience of living in designs of the future that we believe most people will consider to be better because it will be more enjoyable and fulfilling. We also think most people will consider it better because it is made possible specifically through a foundation of sustainable sustainability and a philosophy that is for The Highest Good of All.

Phase II: Open Source Project-Launch Blueprinting

Everything we do we are open source project-launch blueprinting and free-sharing to make it as easy and affordable as possible to duplicate, adapt, and evolve in the manner that suits each individual and/or group’s needs. Free-sharing information like this is our aggressive-exposure engine and an aspect of One Community that will accelerate indefinitely as we continue to build our team, move onto the property, and continuously build and evolve everything that is One Community.

Phase III: Inviting the World to Participate

Everything we are open source project-launch blueprinting is designed to invite the world to participate by duplicating it as either individual components or complete teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities that will be able to be built almost anywhere in the world. Additionally, people can join One Community as membersconsultants and/or partners, or use the suggestions links on our open source project-launch blueprinting hubs to help with the design, implementation, and evolution process. Scholarships, weekend learning and work crews, and tourism will be the foundations of One Community once we have sufficient infrastructure in place to support these options.

Phase IV: Universal Appeal and Global Expansion

As One Community continues evolving and establishing itself, everything we create and promote will serve as the engine to inspire people to align with the concept of open source and sustainable living for The Highest Good of All in designs of the future. We are doing this to create mainstream appeal and our path to achieving this appeal is demonstrating a happier, more affordable, and ecologically friendly model of living that can be built anywhere in the world.

Open source project-launch blueprinting it all is how we believe the model will spread and, possibly most importantly, that it will predictably spread even faster in the areas where it is needed most because building restrictions, the cost of land, and materials costs are in most cases lower in these areas.


We are creating everything One Community does as open-source and free-shared blueprints because we see this as the path to a new Golden Age of creativity, innovation, cooperation, and collaboration for all of humanity. Our model is a solution model that creates additional solution creating models enabling people to live and collaborate globally for The Highest Good of All. The easier we make everything we do, the faster we see the world transitioning.

Every aspect of the designs of the future model supports itself and contributes to its success, from sustainable foodenergy, and homes, to the social architectureOne Community Education Program, and open source sharing model itself. Each piece can be accessed, evolved, and even re-birthed as something completely new. It can be duplicated by itself or with other modules, with applications as diverse as the people who want and need them. The constantly expanding total model will additionally be able to be used in its entirety as the open-source project-launch blueprint for a variety of duplicate teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities capable of being built virtually anywhere.

The most profound part is: that the more we open source share, the more we help move everyone forward, the more people know about what we are doing and can participate, and the more successful and capable we are of project-launch blueprinting and sharing even more still. This is all supported and made possible because:

  • We have the team to produce an extensive quality and diversity of tools and resources
  • It gives us the opportunity to broaden the concept of sustainability and make it more desirable
  • Areas we open source expand our ability to evolve even faster through global collaboration
  • Each new area open-sourced expands our target audience, advancing our world-changing goals
  • The more we show our ability to share what we are creating, the more others will benefit and want to join this movement and mimic the part we are playing in it


One Community’s open source strategy will evolve 5 primary types of open source content purposed to reach and service as broad an audience as possible. This includes the following mediums of sharing that are being developed to function as standalone resources or in combination with each other:

  • Video tutorials
  • Audio tutorials
  • Live streaming video
  • Direct/live interaction
  • Written content and downloadable PDFs

Maximum exposure is accomplished through simultaneous implementation of the following strategies:

  • Free-shared audio, visual, and PDF downloads
  • Scholarship and intern programs for direct learning
  • Videoing or live-streaming almost all classes and activities
  • Tourism option for involvement in almost all aspects of One Community
  • Dedicated and search engine optimized sections of our website for each key area
  • Our established infrastructure that simultaneously posts to over 20 social networks


One Community sees the issues of the world as interdependent and interconnected. To address them simultaneously, we are open-source blueprinting a more advanced standard of living by designing holistic, environmentally regenerative, self-sustaining, adaptable solutions for all areas of sustainability. We will model these within a comprehensive “village/city” which will be built in the southwestern U.S. This teacher/demonstration hub will be a place where people can experience a new way of living and then replicate it with our open source blueprints: creating designs of the future, a model solution that creates additional solution-creating models.
