Ecosystem Creation and Management – One Community Weekly Progress Update #297

Successful ecosystem creation and management is possible using permaculture. If we do this as conscious and conscientious stewards of our local environments, we’ll be contributing to doing the same for our global environments. If we open source and free-share the process and make it easy enough, affordable enough, and demonstrate it as attractive enough, the idea will predictably spread on its own. This is one path to global sustainability. One Community calls it living and creating for The Highest Good of All.

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, focusing on ecosystem creation and management.

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, emphasizing ecosystem creation and management. This replicable community will serve as an example for 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 food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economics design, social architecture, fulfilled living, stewardship practices and more. We are creating 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. Ecosystem creation and management is a core principle of our approach.

BUILDING THE FIRST OF MANY

One Community will be the first teacher/demonstration hub. 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. Ecosystem creation and management will be integral to our success.
