Humanity has the ability and resources to positively and permanently transform the world for everyone. We are bringing together the people who want to help us and creating detailed open source blueprints and a self-replicating starting point to make this happen. We know if we make it easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough, world-change will spread on its own and that is One Community’s goal.
This page describes the specifics of how this is possible and contains the following sections:
Our four-phase strategy for the creation of solution models that create solution creating models uses open source blueprints for duplication that simultaneously address all aspects of the human experience (food, energy, housing, education, social inequality and injustice, fulfilled living, etc.). We see these areas as interdependent and requiring a comprehensive solution if humanity is to move ecologically, socially, economically, and permanently towards a truly sustainable future for everyone.
Our open source model and blueprints engage and inspire people while simultaneously making sustainable living more affordable and easy to replicate. By free-sharing the step-by-step plans people need for duplication, inviting people to participate, and demonstrating sustainable teacher/demonstration hubs as a more desirable way of living, the model will predictably expand on its own. It is this approach we see uniting the world and leading to a new Golden Age for humanity. While we understand that not everyone believes this is even possible, we are nonetheless bringing together all those that do see this as possible as the non-profit think tank of forward-thinking individuals willing to design, build, and open source project-launch blueprint and free-share it for The Highest Good of All™.
To inspire as many people as possible, we are expanding sustainability to include fulfilled living practices and all aspects of an increasingly comprehensive sustainability model. All this together will ultimately accomplish:
We are open source sharing an evolution of sustainable living that addresses the complete human experience. We are doing this because we see the solutions for global food, housing, energy, education, social inequality, ethical business practices, earth regenerative practices, and a desire for a more fulfilling living experience as inseparably interconnected. As a comprehensive solution, we are addressing all these areas simultaneously and open source free-sharing everything needed for individual duplication and/or duplication as complete self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world.
As we address and open source share these areas we will establish a living example of the first teacher/demonstration village purposed to teach others. To maximally facilitate duplication, One Community will provide seven duplicable examples and function indefinitely as a place people can visit and a non-profit and open source think tank continuing to further evolve and share solutions in all of the above areas and more. We will also provide hands-on experience and training. Most importantly, growing upon our sustainable foundation, we will endlessly make this comprehensive solution even more:
The more people that are inspired and desiring for themselves what it is that we create, the more demand there will be for spreading the model. This leads to the directing of financial resources and resourceful people where we believe they are needed most: the establishment of additional sustainable communities around the world. We also feel this duplication will specifically happen quickly internationally due to the affordability of overseas land, less restrictive building environments, and the spirit of adventure in many people who really desire to make a difference for those who need it most.
To meet the increasing demand for sustainability that we are contributing to, we are coordinating with manufacturers, education institutions, individuals, and vendors. This is also part of this model to help the world. Its purpose is to facilitate more engagement of the sustainability industry, produce the absolute best possible consumer value, and the most convenient delivery of goods and methodologies for building sustainable living communities and sustainable living components.

This means we not only provide education and increase needed sustainability resources, we also address the underlying roadblocks to a sustainable planet by decreasing the cost and simultaneously increasing the demand and generating financial support for global sustainability, philanthropy, and humanitarian movements and organizations.
As demand increases, so too will the ways to participate. Right now people are participating as consultants or partners donating time to our 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and others are more involved as Pioneers of the core team that will be moving to the property. We also have options for people to just follow our progress or participate through internet contribution. Once the supportive physical infrastructure is about 30% developed we will additionally be ready to expand what we offer to include:
We also imagine the high likelihood that our organization will become a foundation that can be trusted as the donation point for distribution of monies to help others to establish this model also.
Our approach to global sustainable development is making duplication of a complete solution as easy as possible. We want to inspire people with what is available so the momentum and money of the mainstream is invested in creating additional teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities modeled after One Community. This will also establish One Community as a permanent contributor pioneering a new paradigm of philanthropy and humanitarianism; a paradigm founded on giving people the necessary tools to better meet their own needs and desires by establishing themselves as sustainable villages that teach others how to establish sustainability too. We see this as the key to transforming the way people live in developed nations while also facilitating the growth of comprehensive global sustainability as people integrate and create sustainability with cultures abroad too.

Here is our 4-step strategy for world change:
Here is another perspective on this, produced by our friends at Sustainable Human. This 6-minute video dives deep into how our society is currently valuing things and how foundational systemic change is what is needed to create a world that works for everyone.
“This song goes out to every single member of the human race. Each action you take has an impact on the rest of humanity. So make your life about something positive, and do some good to make a change. The world needs you.”
Right on Colby, we agree whole heartedly!
