To create a sustainable planet, new-world human progress models are needed to teach average people with average means how to build and live sustainably. Open source sharing these models and designing them to go beyond food, energy, and housing to also include education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, and global stewardship practices is a process One Community calls living and creating for The Highest Good of All.
