youtube preview image blog 226

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 foodenergy, 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.

One Community Welcomes Vamsi Pulugurtha to the Engineering Team

One Community welcomes Vamsi Pulugurtha to the Engineering Team as our newest Volunteer/Consultant!

Vamsi-Pulugurtha-640

Mechanical Engineer: Vamsi works as a CAE Engineer at GM Research and Development. He’s worked with GM since 2014 with the primary aim of his engineering group being weight reduction as a path to increased fuel efficiency while maintaining safety. His work specifically ranges from material-testing and subsequent CAE/FEA correlation to performing full vehicle FMVSS and NCAP crash analysis. When not working, Vamsi loves going on hikes and road trips, enjoying clear blue skies, trees and beaches. Vamsi strongly believes that every single person has a responsibility to care deeply about how their day-to-day activities are impacting our planet in small but significant ways. He’s extremely passionate about clean and sustainable energy generation and storage. Coming from a country like India where almost ~300 million people (equivalent to the entire population is united states) do not have electricity, this passion for sustainability only grew stronger with time and he has always been looking to positively contribute in some way shape or form to the cause. As a One Community team member, Vamsi is applying his knowledge and passion to finite element analysis and HVAC design for the Duplicable City Center and Tropical Atrium.

WELCOME TO THE TEAM VAMSI!

Thinking Beyond Sustainability – One Community Weekly Progress Update #222

youtube preview image blog 222

Thinking beyond sustainability is needed if mainstream implementation is to happen. What this means is going beyond the common sustainability areas like foodenergyhousing and also including sustainable and forward-thinking approaches to education, economic design, and social architecture. Putting these together and open sourcing and free-sharing them is One Community’s approach to creating a global collaboration of teacher/demonstration communities and hubs working together to live in and create even more of these hubs for The Highest Good of All.

Ecological Human Progress – One Community Weekly Progress Update #221

Ecological Human Progress – One Community Weekly Progress Update #221

Ecological human progress is needed if we desire to achieve some level of sustainable balance with our planet and all life on it. To accomplish this, the main foundations of our living experience should be addressed sustainably. These would include foodenergyhousing, education, economic design, and social architecture. If we make the sustainable solutions to all these areas open source and free-shared, we can evolve and expand them faster for the benefit of everyone. One Community is an all-volunteer team working on this as a model for living and creating for The Highest Good of All.

Prosperity Built on Sustainability – One Community Weekly Progress Update #220

youtube preview image blog 220

Does prosperity require competition and capitalism? What if we create prosperity built on sustainability and cooperation instead? If we agree this is a worthwhile idea, working together we could easily combine sustainable foodenergyhousing, education, economic design, social architecture, and even fulfilled living practices to provide a self-sufficient living model that would eliminate almost all living expenses and provide a better way of living than the way most people are experiencing now. We could further share this model as an eco-tourism destination to provide revenue for expansion without people having to work traditional jobs; the experience of how they were living would be enjoyable enough that people would want to vacation and visit. This is the foundation of One Community’s model for world change and we’re open sourcing it as a model for living and creating for The Highest Good of All.

Maximizing Sustainability Evolution – One Community Weekly Progress Update #219

Open source and free-shared sustainable foodenergy, and housing infrastructure is one path to maximizing sustainability evolution within our lifetime. Adding education, sustainable economics, and social architecture can further this goal by making sustainability more attractive to the average person. In this way, One Community is building a global all-volunteer team collaborating to create a self-replicating model for positive and permanent global change for The Highest Good of All.
