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. Our model for this is combining holistic, environmentally-regenerative, self-sustaining, and adaptable solutions for food, energy, housing, education, economics, and society. We will demonstrate the combination of these within a comprehensive “village/city” which will be built in the southwestern U.S. This teacher/demonstration hub will be a place people can experience and then replicate using our open source blueprints; creating a model solution that creates additional solution-creating models.
This page overviews and links to all the specifics of One Community that we feel are most important. It is divided into the following sections:
One Community’s Mission is to help people create a better world by demonstrating a more sustainable and enriching way of living and open source everything required for replication. We are accomplishing this through:
In accomplishing the above three goals, we are creating an entirely new paradigm of philanthropy and humanitarianism founded on complete solutions versus bandages. We are demonstrating the value of an interconnected and comprehensive approach by providing a living example. An example people can experience and replicate. Most significantly, we are doing this in a way that helps people help the world while simultaneously and dramatically improving their own lives.
Our approach is to address global need by giving people what they want. The “need” is a regenerative societal model capable of creating global sustainability. The “want” is a life that is more affordable, fulfilling, healthy, sustainable, resilient, efficient, and enjoyable for people and their friends and families. Combining these is something we call living and creating for “The Highest Good of All.” Accomplishing them simultaneously is providing a sustainable sustainability model that:
We see the following areas as foundational to making our model desirable, impactful, and self-replicating:
More specifically, we are purposed to provide everything necessary to make replication and further evolution of each of these areas as easy as possible. Each area is replicable as an individual component or combined to create complete teacher/demonstration hubs like One Community. We are developing and sharing in detail:
There are 5 foundations that we feel define our organization and our approach to global transformation:
Areas we have invested significant energy in to support these foundations include:
The One Community self-replicating model is capable of creating a sustainable planet within 30 years. We will achieve this by establishing successful teacher/demonstration hubs on every continent, appropriate for each of the five main types of climates, and with replicable options for even the most challenged economies. The 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 we are accomplishing this can be found on the One Community Methodology Page.
Q: What sets One Community’s open source goals apart from similar projects?
To our knowledge, no other project exists that is providing the comprehensive nature and detail of everything we are open source project-launch blueprinting.
Q: What is the specific One Community short-term goal?
Q: What is the ultimate One Community long-term goal?
To transform our planet into a sustainable and happier one through teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built all over the world. We will work with these hubs as our open source partners and fellow leaders of the open source, Highest Good of All, and sustainable planet movement. We see this as leading to a New Golden Age of cooperation, collaboration, innovation, creativity, sustainable living, and increased happiness for the entire human organism.
Q: How is One Community funded?
We are still seeking funding. Please see our Funding Related Details Page.
Q: Where will One Community be located and why?
Click HERE for property details that include why we have chosen the location we have.
Q: How far is One Community in the creation process?
Q: Why not just build a small-scale prototype home or community that includes a minimum-scale revenue-generating demonstration/operation? Wouldn’t this get things going faster?
This already exists as Airbnb and people are doing amazing with it, so small-scale operations are not what we see as missing. What we see as missing is a complete model for self-sufficiency that is open source and replicable. Even complete models for self-sufficiency already exist in the form of the many successful eco-villages, what none of those offer though is any sort of understanding and/or path for how average people with average means can replicate them. We also think there isn’t enough of a compelling reason for most people to bother with changing how they live now to engage such a path/project, so our project is purposed to provide and demonstrate that too.
From a total global-change perspective though, we think it is equally important to create a permanent place dedicated to open source and capable of providing for the complete needs of hundreds of people working on open source creations full-time. We think such a place should provide enough revenue generation and space for expansion to grow to over a 1000+ full-time volunteers while also being able to support the establishment of other open source teacher/demonstration/R&D hubs around the world. This is why the intended property, village models, and social architecture and economic focuses are all big.
To support faster and broader implementation while working on these big goals, we are also taking the extra time necessary to develop everything so it is modular and also implementable as individual components. This will allow for anyone who doesn’t desire the full teacher/demonstration hub approach to have options too, but our primary goal is to demonstrate the complete teacher/demonstration hub as easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough for average people with average means to want to replicate it and/or use what we provide to build their own version.
Q: If you are giving everything away through open source, how do you intend to make money?
Our model is designed to prosper specifically because we are giving everything away through open source project-launch blueprinting. We accomplish this through eco-tourism marketed with the open source infrastructure we have already created and other supported revenue streams outlined on our revenue streams page. All of this further promotes our model of spreading sustainability and actively promoting and distributing even more open source blueprints for duplication by as many people as possible.
Q: How will this help people in developing countries and other areas where resources are needed most?
We will demonstrate building a teacher/demonstration community, village, and/or city as profitable for large investors and/or a way for small groups of people to pool what resources they have and get out of debt. We see this spreading and bringing resources to the areas that need them most, because building these villages in these areas will be more affordable and easier to do with less building restrictions.
Q: How do you stop the model from being totally capitalized without the positive intent of the original model?
Because of our open source commitment, we are not focused on putting limitations on the use of everything we are creating. We will, however, directly support any organization using our content and contributing their adaptations and evolutions to open source project-launch blueprinting and operating for The Highest Good of All.
