Global change progress will happen at the speed people choose to participate. If we can demonstrate models for this that are easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough, participation will increase exponentially and they will spread on their own. Comprehensive sustainability and living and creating for The Highest Good of All can provide one viable model for this and One Community is developing such a model and open sourcing it as we do:

One Community’s physical location will forward this movement as the first of many self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world. This is the March 27th, 2016 edition (#157) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:
GLOBAL CHANGE PROGRESS INTRO: @1:05
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @1:58
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @2:56
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @3:35
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @5:28
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @6:56
One Community is facilitating global change progress through Highest Good education that is for all ages, applicable in any environment, adaptable to individual needs, far exceeds traditional education standards, and more fun for both the teachers and the students:
This last week the core team transferred the final 25% of the written content for the Cooperation and Collaboration Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Cooperation and Collaboration” is now 100% completely on our website.
Behind the scenes, we wrote the third 25% of the written part of the Summer Lesson Plan, bringing it to 75% complete.
We also completed the final 25% of the mindmap for the Work Lesson Plan, bringing it to 50% complete, which you see here:
One Community is facilitating global change progress through Highest Good food that is more diverse, more nutritious, locally grown and sustainable, and part of our open source botanical garden model to support and share bio-diversity:
This last week the core team completed another round of organizing the streamlined version of our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan page, which includes contributions provided by Naturopathic Doctor Matt Marturano (creator of the COHERENT model for comprehensive digestive health). This week we added the summary and FAQs to the page. The page is now approximately 99% complete.
One Community is facilitating global change progress through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:
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 reviewing, editing, and providing additions to Sections 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6 and showing more inclusive detailed measurements for Section 3 to increase clarifications of the excavation profile. We’d say we are now 74% complete with this total update and rewrite behind the scenes.
We also replaced the header images for our open source shower head research page and rainwater harvesting and catchment pages after confirming accidental copyright infringement by one of our previous images use on these pages.
Working on the Tree House Village (Pod 7), Jesika Rohrbach (Architectural Drafter, Designer, and 3-D Modeler) added an additional round of details to the inside of the Tree House Village arts and crafts structure and also aesthetic enhancements and specifics to the outside of the recreation structure (bottom row), all of which you can see here:
Dean Scholz, Architectural Designer, further developed what’s necessary for us to create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 12 of this work that continued with placement of new structures into the complete village model, finalization of cob sitting-space textures, adding rock foundations to one of the shade structures, and a new shade structure design.
Shadi Kennedy (Artist and Graphic Designer) also created this updated layout proposal for a new graphic to share the features of the Tropical Atrium that is the center of the Earthbag Village (Pod 1).
One Community is facilitating global change progress through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, provide laundry for over 300 people, is beautiful, spacious, and saves resources, money, and space:
The core team also started render work on the Social Dome. Here are two 2nd floor rendering scenes, where the focus was setting up the background and placement of lights.
We also worked on final touches for the Sketchup model of the pallet furniture in the Living Dome rooms.
Bupesh Seethala (Interior Designer), continued working on the design for the Natural Pool and Spa mechanical room details. Here you see his work starting to design and place stones, planning the water flow, and designing the entryway.
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), started researching the overhead lighting and shelving options you see here for the Duplicable City Center library. She also started drawing some layout options and possible furniture additions. These furniture, lighting and shelving options will go with the pipe couch and table/chair Iris already created.
Brianna Johnson (Interior Designer), also continued her work on the pipe shelving for the library. What you see here is her 3rd design layout further simplifying the design and replacing some of the lighting at the top with wall art instead.
One Community is facilitating global change progress through a Highest Good society approach to living that is founded on fulfilled living, the study of meeting human needs, Community, and making a difference in the world:
This last week the core team created an Open Source and Patents Defensive Publishing Costs Research Page with the help of Oz Czerski, Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law. This page is the first step in a comprehensive tutorial on Defensive Publishing to permanently place things in the open source domain.
We also made final edits and began a multi-hour reorganization of the icons designed by Graphic Designer, Ivan Manzurov. The finished icons are here and we’d say we are about 20% done with this graphics task.
Richard Tanzer (Patent Agent) also began editing our Open Source and Patents page. The original page was created by Oz Czerski and here you can see Richard’s first round of updates and edits happening behind the scenes. We’d say Richard is about 15% done with the complete edit.
