Reinventing the sustainability industry as an open source and collaboration-focused industry will speed innovation, lower costs, improve quality, maximize producer and inventor benefits, and speed progress towards a sustainable planet for all. A truly comprehensive and holistic approach to developing the necessary foundations for this is open source sustainability solutions combining food, energy, and housing with ecocentric models for fulfilled living, education, sustainable economics and earth stewardship. One Community calls this living and creating for The Highest Good of All:

One Community’s physical location will forward this movement as the first of many self-replicating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to be built around the world. This is the October 25th, 2015 edition (#135) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments:
Here is the bullet-point list of this last week’s design and progress discussed in detail in the video above:

One Community is reinventing the sustainability industry through Highest Good education that is for all ages, applicable in any environment, adaptable to individual needs, far exceeds traditional education standards, and more fun for both the teachers and the students:
This last week the core team transferred the first 50% of the written content for the Emotional States Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. The written part of this lesson plan is purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Emotional States”.
Behind the scenes, we also wrote the final 1/2 of the Energy Lesson Plan, bringing the written part for that to 100% complete.
And finally, we completed and added the final 50% of the mindmap for the Creativity Lesson Plan to the webpage. You can see that mindmap here:
One Community is reinventing the sustainability industry through Highest Good food that is more diverse, more nutritious, locally grown and sustainable, and part of our open source botanical garden model to support and share bio-diversity:
We also added three additional recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan – These recipes are: Banana Date Muffins, Pasta Salad, and Veggies in a Blanket:
One Community is reinventing the sustainability industry through Highest Good housing that is artistic and beautiful, more affordable, more space efficient, lasts longer, DIY buildable, and constructed with healthy and sustainable materials:
This last week the core team continued what we hope will be the final revision of the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week included adding details for a step-by-step mobile compass base unit for easy extraction from a completed dome, more updates to the french drain water collection design that you can see below, and researching and adding another 8 materials and photos to the materials list.
We also continued the redesign of the Highest Good housing page to include a quick link image section and more updates to the content of this page.
In addition to this, we began posting the website content for the dome home window and door framing tutorial for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. What you see here is another 20% of this tutorial update bringing us to 35% done with this new page creation.
One Community is reinventing the sustainability industry through a Duplicable and Sustainable City Center that is LEED Platinum certified/Sustainable, can feed 200 people at a time, provide laundry for over 300 people, is beautiful, spacious, and saves resources, money, and space:
This week the core team continued updating the Sketchup 3-D for the Duplicable City Center. This week we focused on placement of appliances and detailing the food service areas. The images you see here show all our progress in these areas and we’d say we are now 65% done with this 3-D work.
Iris Hsu (Industrial Designer), continued developing and evolving the Pipe Furniture designs. What you see here are the 5th generation concept designs for the chairs for the Duplicable City Center library. These chairs will be able to be converted into tables and are designed to be built out of PVC or recycled plumbing piping.
Behind the scenes Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) and Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student), continued developing the Control System connector deck. Here you see mike drawing details from our latest collaborative call, an image of the connector deck developing in AutoCA, and Mike showing Lucas the goodie box of hardware he’ll be sending him so they can start building the deck and writing and testing software for it.
One Community is reinventing the sustainability industry through a Highest Good society approach to living that is founded on fulfilled living, the study of meeting human needs, Community, and making a difference in the world:
This last week the core team continued editing and formatting the wonderful work of Oz Czerski (Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law). This included finishing edits to the Open Source Trademarking tutorial page that you see here. One more round of review by Oz and this page will be 100% complete.
