One Community is a non-profit organization purposed for open source sustainable civilization building and design. Phase I includes Highest Good approaches to food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit business design, social architecture, fulfilled living, stewardship practices and more. We see open source and free-sharing solutions to these interconnected and interdependent elements as the foundations for what is necessary to build a complete living model capable of positively and permanently transforming the world for everyone and everything here. This is One Community’s weekly progress update (#39) covering our accomplishment for the week of November 18th, 2013.
