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.

Creating a Better Planet for us All – One Community Weekly Progress Update #218

Creating a better planet for us all is possible if enough people want it and choose to participate. Making participation easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough is a time-tested approach that has been very successful in traditional marketing models. Using open source principles to apply this idea of “easy, affordable, and attractive” to all aspects of sustainable and self-sufficient living (foodenergyhousing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled livingglobal stewardship practices, etc.) is One Community’s approach to creating positive change for what we call “The Highest Good of All.”

One Community Welcomes Sangam Stanczak to the Education Team

One Community welcomes Sangam Stanczak to the Education Team as our newest Volunteer/Consultant!

Sangam-640

Environmental Engineer (Ph.D., P.E.), Certified Yoga Instructor, and Organic Gardner: Sangam’s passion to make a positive contribution to the world has been alive since she was 10 years old. This led to her becoming an environmental engineer by training in the field of water, wastewater, and recycled water treatment. In recent years she has also discovered some emerging passions in psychology, education, and yoga. During her free time, she enjoys substitute teaching, practicing and teaching yoga, and furthering her own education. Motivated by her personal experiences and a desire to address the shortcomings she experienced as a child, Sangam thinks all children (and adults) deserve an opportunity to develop the skills that better prepare them for this unique human experience. Sangam brings her diverse background and skills to the One Community team helping develop the Highest Good Education program.

WELCOME TO THE TEAM SANGAM!
