Future sustainable cities need to start somewhere. One Community is that starting point and we are designing seven sustainable city models including do-it-yourself infrastructure for food, housing, energy, and water catchment as well as built-in for-profit and non-profit business infrastructure, an education program for all ages, fulfilled living architecture, and more. These villages will be affordable, beautiful, functional, and completely open source project-launch blueprinted and free-shared so they can be easily duplicated and further evolved around the world. The work to make all of this possible is a global collaborative, immense, and happening right now. This is our weekly progress update (#18) covering our accomplishments for the week of June 24th, 2013.

Here are the details of everything discussed in the video blog above.
We believe future sustainable cities will benefit from a duplicable city center that provides recreation space, dining, and laundry for 100’s of people. In our village models, the SEGO Center City Hub replaces the need for these spaces in individual homes and saves significant resources while providing a beautiful and spacious place with meditation center, natural pool, hot tub, library, and more for all residents to enjoy.
This week Meg West (Landscape Architect, Permaculturalist, and founder of Meg West Design) and Jennifer Engelmeier (Eco-pool and Spa Specialist and founder of www.LoveYourPool.com) completed the natural pool and hot tub layout for this structure.
We’ve also made progress on the SEGO Center 3D. Unfortunately, we had to start over on these domes because our initial efforts were to create a quick mock-up and we now realize that the complexity of this structure necessitates ONE very detailed and accurate 3D rendering. Here are the three domes with the 4 rosters/floor plans layered in and appropriately positioned with the new level of precision and detail we will need for our final blueprints.
We believe future sustainable cities will have the ability to be 100% food self-sufficient and we are building the infrastructure to make this possible while providing a diversity of amazing food that most people don’t have access to in even the largest and most diverse metropolitan areas. This week we finished the planting plan for Walipini 3 and added another 10 plants to the Large-scale Food Production Aquapini Planting and Harvesting Details section of the open source food production and harvesting page.
Here is the Walipini 3 map:
We additionally completed the Attracting Pollinators section for the complete phase I food infrastructure of One Community. You can visit that newly completed section by clicking here: Attracting Pollinators
One Community’s idea of education that is sustainable and for The Highest Good of All is embodied by our open source Education for Life Program. This program is open source and free-shared, being designed to address all ages, and a foundational aspect of our global collaboration approach to creating a sustainable planet that works for everyone. This week we finished applying the research we’ve completed on the alternative teaching methods of Maria Montessori, Waldorf, Carl Orff Schulwerk, Reggio Emilia Approach, Howard Gardner’s 8 Multiple-Intelligences, Bloom’s Taxonomy, and Study Technology to our Teaching Strategies for Life, Learning Tools and Toys for Life, and Ultimate Classroom pages.
This program is purposed to grow and evolve into what we feel will be the most comprehensive, effective, and diversely applicable free-education program and open source and free-shared project-launch usable education blueprint in the world.
One Community is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization practicing the for The Highest Good of All philosophy as its foundation for all decisions. We design and open source free-share comprehensive sustainability components so people have access to these resources to build the sustainable cities of the future anywhere in the world. To facilitate transformational global change we are putting together all the sustainable elements necessary to build seven comprehensive sustainability village models that will provide what we feel most people will consider a more fulfilled way of living. The components of these models will be able to be duplicated modularly or as complete and self-propagating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities. These communities, villages, and cities will not only be model solutions, but solution-creating models that provide even more research, blueprints, and necessary support for successively easier and more affordable and creative duplication everywhere.
This week we also finished final edits on our three investor overview pages in preparation for a new push for us to achieve the funding we need to take our project to the next level. Here are the three new pages, please share them:
