Strategic open source world creation is simultaneously addressing the foundations of what is necessary to live sustainably and happily. Through global thinking and goals, open source and sustainable approaches to food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, and global stewardship practices can be combined to create a way of living that is better than most people are living now. If this way of living is also demonstrated as easy enough and affordable enough, it will predictably spread on its own and this is how One Community sees creating positive and permanent global change as possible.

The core team also continued working in Sketchup on the open source outdoor areas of the Recycled Materials Village (Pod 6). We added planter-barrels, trees, potted plants, an easel, a walking path, and an art display around the tree, as shown here.
Christian Ojeda (Mechatronic Engineer) completed his 21st week helping with the heat-recycling Communal Eco-shower and Vermiculture Bathroom designs. This week’s focus was another round of revisions to the piping layouts for both freshwater and rainwater supplies to the spigots, toilets, and drinking fountains, as shown here.
