Eco-Living and Design – One Community Weekly Progress Update #169

It is time for eco-living and design to progress beyond just foodenergy, and housing to additionally include Highest Good approaches to education, for-profit and non-profit economics design, social architecture, fulfilled living, and stewardship practices. By doing this we can combine physical sustainability with emotional sustainability foundations and create a way of living that most people will consider better than how they are living now. Open sourcing and free-sharing it all will make it easy enough and affordable enough to spread on its own.

This last week the core team put another 10 hours into the behind-the-scenes revision for the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the crowdfunding campaign we are developing. This week’s focus was on section 10, where we analyzed the chronological procedural steps 1-41 for accuracy of content, grammar, and sentence structure. We also changed locations of steps 33-39 due to the addition of 6-mil and 12-mil layers on earthbag course 9 instead of course 8 due to the relocation of the backsplash from the top of the earthbag course 8 to the top of the earthbag course 9. We’d say we are now 86% complete with this total update and rewrite behind the scenes.

WHAT ONE COMMUNITY IS CREATING

One Community is creating 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 for what is possible in eco-living and design.

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, all under the umbrella of eco-living and design. We are creating these resources for implementation as individual components or complete developments called teacher/demonstration hubs with a strong emphasis on eco-living and design. These hubs will help launch additional hubs as awareness and knowledge grow.

BUILDING THE FIRST OF MANY

One Community will be the first teacher/demonstration hub integrating eco-living and design. 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, including eco-living and design.

WHY ONE COMMUNITY IS CREATING THIS

The One Community self-replicating model, focused on eco-living and design, is capable of creating a sustainable planet 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, all incorporating aspects of eco-living and design. 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, promoting the philosophy of eco-living and design.

The specifics of how One Community is accomplishing this can be found on the One Community Solution Model to Create Solution-creating Models Page, which emphasizes eco-living and design. Research supporting and showing the benefits of a model like this can be found on our Research and Resources Articles Archive, with several references to eco-living and design.

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 with principles of eco-living and design.  For One Community residents (the Pioneer Team), the idea of creating and sharing the social and recreational experience with visitors is also fun, exciting, fulfilling, and an additional reason why we are creating this, all while emphasizing eco-living and design.
