The Science of Sustainable Ecology – One Community Weekly Progress Update #240

The Science of Sustainable Ecology – One Community Weekly Progress Update #240

If creating a sustainable planet is the goal, it is essential to understand the science of sustainable ecology from a perspective focused on people’s place within it. This is essential if humanity is to step into the role of conscientious stewards and change the unsustainable course we are currently on. We are capable of sustainable approaches to food, energy, housing, education, economic design, social architecture and so much more. One Community thinks now is the time and open source and free-shared approaches to all these areas is the path.

Measurable Sustainable Change – One Community Weekly Progress Update #239

How do we create measurable sustainable change globally? One approach would be measuring implementation of sustainable food, energy, and housing models. One Community is supporting this with open source plans for all three of these areas and also adding open source and sustainable approaches to education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more. We call all of this living and creating for The Highest Good of All and the goal is a sustainable Earth and the benefits that would provide for all life on it.
