Igniting a new paradigm of sustainable ideas is one path to finally creating a sustainable world that works for everyone. Through open source and new-paradigm solutions for food, energy, housing, education, economics, food, energy, housing, education, economics, fulfilled living models, and Earth Stewardship, we can make these ideas affordable enough, easy enough, and demonstrate them as attractive enough so they will replicate, evolve, and expand on their own. One Community calls this a path to living and creating for The Highest Good of All:

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 January 31, 2016 edition (#149) 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:

One Community is igniting a new paradigm of sustainable ideas 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 Community Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan is purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Community” and it is now 100% complete on the website.
Behind the scenes, we wrote an additional 25% of the Work Lesson Plan, bringing the behind-the-scenes written part of that lesson plan to approximately 75% complete.
We also completed the final 25% of the mindmap for the Winter Lesson Plan, bringing that to 100% complete, as you see here:
One Community is igniting a new paradigm of sustainable ideas 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 further organized the recipes including creating a page for week 3 recipes. The Organization is now approximately 90% complete.
One Community is igniting a new paradigm of sustainable ideas 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 finishing researching and adding photos for concrete pouring and screening, elaborating on the narrative, and beginning the narrative for Section 13: Dome Exterior Finishing. We’d say we are now 66% complete with this total update and rewrite behind the scenes.
Working on the Tree House Village (Pod 7), Jesika Rohrbach (Architectural Drafter, Designers, and 3-D Modeler) continued working on the updates you see here. This is update 2.0 from Jesika and the focus is on the internal and external specifics of the communal kitchen and dining spaces.
Shilcy Augustine (Architect) also continued developing the Compressed Earth Block Village (Pod 4) massage and treatment room spaces. What you see here are some of the different layouts we’re discussing.
Dean Scholz, Architectural Designer, further developed what’s necessary for us to create quality Cob Village (Pod 3) renders. Here is update 4.0 of this work that focused mostly on finding and creating textures for the southeast wing and beginning working on the roads and pathways you see here.
One Community is igniting a new paradigm of sustainable ideas 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:
This week the core team continued the process of learning how to do our own renders for the Duplicable City Center. You can see here this work-in-progress here, covering bathroom renders working on textures, mirrors, sink, floor, and more lights in the public bathrooms.
The core team also integrated Bupesh Seethala’s pallet furniture closet changes in AutoCAD (from last week) into the 3D models you see here:
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), continued with these additional Pipe Couch designs for the Duplicable City Center library. The drawings you see here are her 8th generation drawings continuing development of the couch idea with non-backed designs and a couple more options for the fixed back.
Neha Verma (Construction Project Manager and Bachelor’s of Architecture) also assumed leadership of the development aspects of the Duplicable City Center and created the updates highlighted here for storage and the bathroom entryway area.
Behind the scenes Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) and Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student) continued discussion about what the appearance and best functional design should be for the beside-bed Control Systems interface.
One Community is igniting a new paradigm of sustainable ideas 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 continued our work on the Highest Good Network with Andrew Herman (Software Engineer and Core Member of Futurist Playground). What you see here is brainstorming and outlining on how to integrate customizable options and widgets as well as our exploration into a possible tool for helping with decision making and task allocation.
Working with Oz Czerski, Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law, we also finished the licensing agreements for all our trademarked slogans and logos and added them to our open source Legal Documents page.
