The Official Launch of the Open Source and Free-shared Education for Life Program!

One Community is extremely happy to announce the official launch of the open source and free-shared One Community Education for Life Program. This official launch is made possible because we’ve now completed the structure for all the key pages and can start inputting the information from all the research and work we’ve been doing over the past couple years AND we are ready for suggestions from anyone who would like to help contribute to this part of the One Community open source and free-shared project-launch blueprinting process.

THE EDUCATION FOR LIFE PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Over the next few weeks we will be adding all the content from our continued development and our open source back office, along with the suggestions of our Consultants and YOU, to share the polished version of the foundational infrastructure of this Education Program including: Curriculum for LifeTeaching Strategies for LifeTeaching Tools for Life, and building The Ultimate Classroom. These components are designed to be combined to create endless “Lesson Plans for Life” purposed to grow and evolve what we feel will be the most comprehensive, effective, and diversely applicable free-education program and resource archive in the world. The One Community Foundations of Teaching, Leadership, and Communicating, combined with a collaborative Evaluation and Evolution Component (Portfolio Creation and Maintenance), will then help us to further grow and adapt both the program and as individuals as part of our mission for global sharing and collaboration.

LOOKING AT THE BEST OF WHAT ALREADY EXISTS

To create this education program we have started by researching the best of what already exists and thinking about how we can capture the essence of these systems as a foundation and then build beyond them. To keep the program ever-expanding, globally collaborative, and as comprehensive as possible, we will be posting these pages as we polish the on-going results of our research and maintaining and updating them with the best and most applicable suggestions of anyone who would like to contribute information and ideas.

Here is the first of these completed pages:

Coming soon will also be the following pages that are already available if anyone would like to look at them and start making suggestions to help us make them the best they can be:

Waldorf    ●    Orff Schulwerk    ●    Reggio    ●    8 Intelligences   ●    Bloom’s Taxonomy

SHARING THE EDUCATION FOR LIFE PROGRAM

To help support, encourage, and maximize the open source project-launch blueprinting program related to the Education for Life component we have also:

EDUCATION FOR LIFE PROGRAM NEXT STEPS

The next steps for us and this component of the One Community open source project-launch blueprinting program is to continue researching, developing, and moving everything from our back office to the optimized and heavily trafficked website so the world can find it AND to bring as many people as possible into the evolution and development process so we can make it better and even more accessible and available to everyone. We will also be integrating all the suggestions we receive into the various related components and announcing completed pages here and on all our social media networks so anyone interested can comment, contribute, and/or use the information in the way that works best for them.

THE NEW AQUAPINI DESIGN UPDATE

Through ongoing consultation and design evolution with Avery Ellis (Aquaponics Specialist and owner/operator of Integrated Aquaponics), we were finally ready to get Douglas Simms Stenhouse (Architect and Water Color Artist) what he needed to produce the following design and plans. Evolutions that are new to this drawing include:

  • A more efficient roof design for water collection, reducing materials needs, and increased structural Integrity.
  • Addition of terraced North and West walls that increase growing space and reduce retaining wall needs and cost.
  • Moving the fish pond to the East end to improve ease of traffic flow and harvesting on the West end
  • A direct access drive ramp that eliminates the corner we had before and will make removal of harvested food much easier
  • Ramps instead of stairs to access the filtration system
  • Improved filtration area design that saves space

Solution Based Thinking: SEGO Center Open Source City Hub Progress Update

The SEGO Center City Hub is solution based thinking approach to spreading sustainability and starting  comprehensive sustainable communities, villages, and cities all over the world. This component of One Community as a duplicable teacher/demonstration community, village, and city model is purposed to provide an open source and replicable city center, demonstrate cutting-edge sustainability, to function as a community, village, or city recreation center, dining hall, and laundry facility, and to offer a green-luxury option to donors, major eco-investors, VIPs, or anyone else that might not feel like they are initially ready to stay in one of our earthbag or straw bale hand-constructed homes. Because it replaces individual kitchens, laundry rooms, and living rooms for residents, the SEGO Center also saves significant resources.

SOLUTION BASED THINKING THANKS

These most recent 3D renderings and updates are products of the hard work of Karl Harris (Architect Drafter, Designer, and founder of Harris Design & Technology Services) integrating the work of Meg West (Landscape Architect, Permaculturalist, and founder of Meg West Design) and Jennifer Engelmeier (Eco-pool and Spa Specialist and founder of www.LoveYourPool.com). Andrew Sadera (Architect Drafter and Designer) has also been an on-going contributor and consultant to this phase of component development.

SEGO CENTER CITY HUB MOST RECENT CAD EXPORT

Here is the most recent CAD export for the SEGO Center. In this past week Karl was able to integrate all of Meg’s CAD work into a master copy so we could update the SEGO Center Details Page with everyone’s combined work.

SEGO CENTER CITY HUB 4TH FLOOR EVOLUTION

This week Karl is focusing on the 4th floor meditation/multi-media center 3D renderings and design details. Here is what we’ve produced so far:

SEGO Center City Hub, solution based thinking, SEGO 4th floor, SEGO cupola, SEGO Center, eco architecture, eco progress, eco-evolution, open source city center, free-shared architecture plans

SEGO Center City Hub 4th Floor Cupola Meditation and Multi-media Center

The next evolution is to add in two 7-foot pivot doors to both the East and West walls. These doors will be designed on runners so that they can be opened and positioned as desired to open the entire East and West walls for air and traffic flow and sunrise and sunset views. We will also be replacing the door seen above with a much easier to duplicate “standard” door and replacing all the windows with picture windows for increased lighting and views.

One Community on KBPK 95.5 FM Los Angeles

things are made to happen, Kennedy quote, save the planet, earth conscious, earth conscientious, how can I make a difference, sustainability non-profit, One Community, a new worldOne Community founder Jae Sabol was recently featured on “Environmental Directions,” an international, award-winning interview radio series hosted by Nancy Pearlman. The discussion focused predominantly on sharing One Community as a path to creating increased mainstream involvement. More specifically, the years leading up to where we are now in the process, how our foundation of open source and free-shared blueprint creation is a different approach from the sustainability movement of the 60’s-80’s, and how we feel that demonstrating a more enriching living experience is essential because it specifically fulfills deeper human needs. Additional points touched on included the One Community energy infrastructure, ethical building and increasing habitat, LEED Platinum Certification of the SEGO Center City Hub (previously called The Center of Peace), and additional details revolving around our non-profit mission.

Jae was the second interview of two and can be heard at the following link starting at the 15:50 mark:

New One Community Pages Created

One Community, One Future, The Future of Everyone, Lau Tzu quote, we are unlimitedAlong with all the infrastructure and education program progress, One Community has also been working hard to respond your feedback! Here are a couple of the newest pages we’ve created:

The Importance of Financial Stability for One Community Pioneers and Our Global Goals Page: While it doesn’t cost anything to join or be a part of the One Community Pioneer Team, individual financial stability is important to our global goals and our desire to form a team thinking, creating, and living for The Highest Good of All. Our entire model is designed around building One Community as an open source prototype for self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities that create abundance, self-sufficiency, and frees people from the financial scarcity that we feel limits humanity’s inherent desire to want to help each other. This new page details the importance of individual financial stability in relation to these goals.

International Sustainable Development Page on the One Community www.SustainabilityNonProfit.org overview website: We’ve had tons of feedback that this website is overwhelming. In response to this we have been working to complete an overview site that will function as an easy to navigate portal to the information most relevant for those just introducing themselves to One Community. This new page on the developing SustainabilityNonProfit.org website is a summary page discussing our 4-Phase Sustainable Communities Strategy outlined in much more detail on this website.

Open Source Aquaponics/Aquapini Development Update

Over two years of planning and collaboration on our open source designs for aquaponics/aquapini sustainable food systems are finally at the point where we are drawing up architectural plans! Huge gratitude goes out to the massive investment of time by our primary aquaponics consultant Avery (Aquaponics Specialist and owner/operator of Integrated Aquaponics) and previous Pioneer Dave Jones who have done the most to get us to the point we are at now.

Aquaponics/Aquapini Sketches before Architectural Plans

We just finished our meeting with Doug (Architect and Water Color Artist) and he is now going to take the images you see below and turn them into the quality he has produced for us with Pod 1 and Pod 2.

While Doug is working on the architectural plans for the commercial system depicted above, our next step is drawing out the specifics of what will be planted for each section (trees, media beds, low grow zone, creeper grow zones, and deep water culture), projecting the yields, and evolving the specifics of the aquaculture. We are also getting the plans ready for Doug for the non-commercial designs intended for backyard reproduction featuring food diversity and a more aesthetically appealing “zen garden” themed internal design that you can read more about on our Open Source Sustainable Food Production Systems Details Page.

Village Development Plan – One Community

earthbag village, One Community Pod 1, village development plan, One Community village developmentOur open source village development plan continues to move forward. We made significant progress last week on the Pod 1 (depicted left) Tropical Dome graywater processing plans that are now complete to the point of a 60-page document outlining the design, permitting, and use of the graywater system that we can now start detailing for the tropical dome specific designs.

Karl Harris (Architect Drafter, Designer, and founder of Harris Design & Technology Services) has also completed the first 3D renderings of the SEGO Center City Hub. Here is his initial 3D iteration of the cupola meditation and multi-media center that functions as the 4th floor of this building:

The hovering circle you see was for a possible shade overhang that we decided to drop during discussion on our weekly call. We are also converting the circular design to a much easier to duplicate hexagonal design, adding in pivot doors that will open up the east and west walls, and exploring different roof designs and how they support and integrate with our open sourcesustainability, and self-sufficient teacher/demonstration village development plan.

Food Infrastructure for the Village Development Plan

Lastly, we have completed what we hope will be the final necessary drawing (see below) for the aquapini sustainable food infrastructure designs. We’ve got one more call with Avery Ellis (Aquaponics Specialist, owner/operator of Integrated Aquaponics, and our primary consultant on this component of One Community) and we should be ready to send these drawings to Doug Stenhouse (Architect and Water Color Artist) for the next evolution.

One Community Launches National Volunteer Campaign and Other Updates

win-win-win-win, everyone wins, planet-people-industry-One Community, compensation for partners

One Community is happy to announce that we have launched a national nonprofit volunteer campaign in preparation for the release of our open source collaborative portal, to assist with our swiftly developing education program, and our on-going infrastructure details. In addition to world change, helping One Community comes with a lot of personal, business, and industry benefits too. We also created a page to share these benefits as part of the national campaign: Win Win Win Win Page

Click here for an example of one of our National Ads

WIN WIN WIN WIN PHILOSOPHY

One Community is a Highest Good for All organization with a win-win-win-win philosophy:

  1. Planet
  2. People
  3. Industry
  4. One Community

We see prioritizing these in this order as the most effective method for creating a sustainable planet through gaining mainstream support. We see gaining mainstream support as the most effective method for building a new market interested in sustainability. We see mainstream interest in sustainability as the essential component for the success of all our sustainability partners and for global expansion of all sustainability related industries. Accomplishing these things is the foundation of our 4-phase strategy for world change and for creating self-sufficient and self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities all over the world.

OTHER ONE COMMUNITY UPDATES

SEGO Center City Hub: We are now starting to create 3D renderings in CAD, working on finalizing the changing area and rinse area for the central natural pool and eco hot tub, moving the library off to the side so it has a view of the regeneration zone for the natural pool and adding a second floor loft above it, and working with our newest partner, Luis Rincon, to complete the engineering details for the central cupola.

Open Source Education Program for Life: We are within 1-2 weeks of being able to create the component pages to share more details on this program. Right now we are working to complete enough details of one component that includes curriculum, teaching styles, and teaching tools so that we can present all the components in a manner that is easily understandable. Three members of our core team are currently focusing on this aspect of One Community so we are progressing it very quickly and will share the results as we complete them.

Aquaponics Infrastructure: We’ve had meetings with Avery and Doug this past week and we’re drawing up what we hope will be the last drawing Doug needs to produce the first generation of professional plans. We’ll post them here as soon as they develop.

Pod 1: We’re now three weeks into the greywater processing design of the Tropical Dome. This is the first time we’ve shared anything about this here and we should have open source content for this and/or the associated water catchment designs within another week or two.

Other News:

We’ve also just completed significant updates to our Purpose, Values, and Mission Page including this new graphic:

For The Highest Good of All, One Community Values, Care as a Value, Share as a Value, Play as a Value, Thinking Global, One Community Purpose, One Community Mission, One Community Vision, One Community Key Beliefs

Click image to visit our newly updated Purpose, Mission, Vision, and Values Page’s

We believe the most sustainable civilization is one that chooses to operate and live for the highest good of all of its people. This is our overarching philosophy and everything we do, and are working to create, is approached from this perspective because we believe that even a very small percentage of the population choosing to work together for The Highest Good of All has the ability to positively transform the world for everyone. From our perspective, Highest Good of All thinking can be divided into 3 simple values almost everyone learns as children: Care, Share, and Play.

The graphic above and the new updates to our Purpose, Values, and Mission Page have been designed to reflect these three simple values of Care, Share, and Play as we are creating synergy with our Open Source Education Program for Life and long-standing One Community components with a desire for a level of simplicity that makes sense to even the youngest people.
