Sustainable civilization design and implementation can be accomplished through open source sustainability components covering and combining food, energy, housing, education, economics, recreation, and stewardship practices. Self-replicating and self-sustainable teacher/demonstration models that make all components easier, more affordable and more attractive to implement can accelerate the process by inspiring and educating people with a complete living model. 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 June 7th, 2015 edition (#117) of our weekly progress update detailing the previous week’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:
SUSTAINABLE CIVILIZATION DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION INTRO @1:05
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION @2:00
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:15
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:22
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @6:38
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @7:22
SUSTAINABLE CIVILIZATION DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION SUMMARY: @8:22

One Community is facilitating sustainable civilization design and implementation 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 second 25% of the content for the Communication lesson plan to the website. This means that this lesson plan, which teaches all subjects, to all learning levels, using the central theme of Communication, is now 50% complete on our website:
Behind the scenes, we wrote the first part of our lesson plan with the central theme of “Freedom” – which now brings that to 25% complete.
We also finished the next 25% of the image creation for the “Communication” lesson plan mind map, which you can see here, which brings that mindmap to 50% complete:
One Community is facilitating sustainable civilization design and implementation 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:
This last week the core team inished the final social media imagery and featured our open source potatoes hub:
We also researched and added two additional recipes to the open source peppers hub, which you can see here. More recipes from our Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan that feature peppers will be added here in the future:
Last but not least, we added three new recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan – These recipes are: Coconut Pecan & Apricot Granola, Beet & Asparagus Salad, and Creamy Asparagus Soup. Yum!
One Community is facilitating sustainable civilization design and implementation 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 updated over 40 more images for final instructions of the custom furniture assembly for the Earthbag Village and the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. We also created an additional 24-page “Bed Materials List” document. This brings image review and updates to 100% complete for these instructions.
We also added the second 50% of our research to the waterproofing strategy page for the earth dome structures. We estimate this brings the page to 75% complete… additional graphics and links are next.
And we moved another 20% of the earth dome loft structural engineering calculations to the website. This open source work was completed by Antonio Zambianco (Civil Engineering Student) and is now 80% complete on the site:
Jorge Antonio Ricardo (Mechanical Engineering Student) finished the 3-D printing needs for a 3-dome cluster and we are now waiting on a quote to print an 8″ by 8″ version of this structure showing how it can be built as one dome, as 3 domes, with or without a kitchen and bathroom dome, and/or as an ADA compliant structure with wheelchair access.
Song Dong (M.S. in Mechanical Engineering) also created this first round of reciprocating roof designs for the vermiculture bathroom and communal shower domes:
Sayonara Batista de Oliveira (4th-year Architecture and Urban Planning Student) also completed a week of researching the benefits and challenges of shipping container construction. You can see the details of Sayonara’s work here, added by the Core Team to the new Shipping Container Village (Pod 5) page:
Nelli Levental (Graphic Designer and College Professor) also created this more detailed drawing of the music-inspired communal living structure for the Cob Village (Pod 3):
Renata Maehara (Civil Engineering student) then developed the Cob Village (Pod 3) progressions you see here, building off of Nelli and Sayonnara’s work:
One Community is facilitating sustainable civilization design and implementation 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 last week Mayke Balbino (Architecture and Urban Design Student) completed the first outline of the Duplicable City Center time projections spreadsheet:
Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) also created the next steps you see here for developing the Control Systems designs. We’d say we’re done with about the first 30% of the research and organization process:
One Community is facilitating sustainable civilization design and implementation 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, working in coordination with Jin Hua (Internet Marketing Expert and Web Developer), began the massive process of updating our entire website to be mobile friendly. This included updating our theme, fixing all our homepage images and videos, and all our primary menus. We’d say we are now about 20% done with this complete website overhaul:
Behind the scenes, Binru Chen (Accountant Specializing in Audit and Financial Reporting) has continued to update the for-profit and nonprofit income and balance statement details that will soon be part of the tax considerations and strategy page. This work is part of the Highest Good Economics component of building teacher/demonstration hubs. We’d say this work is now about 50% complete behind the scenes and 20% complete on the site:
