If you love your job, the video attached to this update is not for you. For everyone else, let’s talk about radical sustainability to address jobs nobody likes. Sustainability lowers overhead, increases self-sufficiency, and can provide the foundation for people to work from home or not work a traditional job at all. One Community wants to make this an option for anyone who wants it and we’re open sourcing and free-sharing sustainable designs for food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more in support of this.
