Forwarding the Evolution of Sustainability – One Community Weekly Progress Update #163

Forwarding the evolution of sustainability can be accelerated through open source sharing models for self-sufficient eco-villages. For maximum effect, it makes sense to include within these village models approaches for Highest Good foodenergy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economics design, social architecture, fulfilled living, and stewardship practices and more. We call this living and creating for The Highest Good of All:

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 continued insertion of backfill steps and steps for raising the poly instruction that are part of Section 10: Construction of Stem Walls and Dome. We also completed further edits of Section 13: Subterranean Exterior Ground Finish of Polyethylene Water Barrier and EPS Insulation. We additionally moved all new green-step headings into the Section 10 doc and inserted newly written narratives. We’d say we are now 80% 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 focusing on forwarding the evolution of sustainability. 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, forwarding the evolution of sustainability. A place based on compassion, kindness, and collaboration. This replicable community will serve as an example for what is possible in terms of forwarding the evolution of sustainability.

Throughout our design process we are open sourcing and free-sharing everything needed for construction and replication, thus forwarding the evolution of sustainability. This includes what we call “Highest Good” approaches to foodenergyhousingeducationfor-profit and non-profit economics designsocial architecturefulfilled livingstewardship practices and more, all with a focus on forwarding the evolution of sustainability. 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.

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, aimed at forwarding the evolution of sustainability.

WHY ONE COMMUNITY IS CREATING THIS

The One Community self-replicating model is capable of creating a sustainable planet within 30 years, with a strong focus on forwarding the evolution of sustainability. 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, forwarding the evolution of sustainability. 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, with a emphasis of forwarding the evolution of sustainability.

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, focusing on forwarding the evolution of sustainability.  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.
