Sustainable civilization strategies are needed if we are to achieve a sustainable planet. One Community is creating them as open source and free-shared and covering food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more. When combined in to a complete model, we call it living and creating for The Highest Good of All.

Mike Kowalski (Game Developer) joined the team to help with updating our Recycled Materials Village (Pod 6) renders that are too big for anything but a gaming computer. You can see the beginnings of Mike’s review process here.
Dean Scholz (Architectural Designer) continued with the Cob Village (Pod 3) AutoCAD layout updates. Here is update 104 of Dean’s work. This week he added new windows and doors, furniture to the social spaces, and started adding landscaping elements.
Dan Alleck (Designer and Illustrator) completed his 15th week working on the Compressed Earth Block Village render additions. This week he finished work on this Massage Room Looking Northwest. This image is on the site now too.
And Jagannathan Shankar Mahadevan (Mechanical Engineer) completed his 18th week volunteering and finished all the calculations for the Cob Village Cost Analysis Page. What you see here is a sample of this work that includes the materials, equipment, furniture, etc.
Jagannathan also then wrote the entire narrative for the page, some of which is shown here.

This week, the core team continued research and design of the open source climate battery designs. What you see here is the continued process of integrating climate batteries into the Phase 2 food plans that include the Aquapinis and Walipinis.
One Community is creating sustainable civilization strategies 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:

The Highest Good Network software team consisting of Sowmya Manohar (Software Engineer, Web Developer & Net Application Developer), Shubhra Mittal (Software Delivery Manager), Priyanka Singh (Software Developer), and Asha Tadimari (Software Engineer). This week the team continued working on making the badges dynamic and also updated the profile form so a user can edit their personal information, so an Administrator can edit personal/administrative information, and so any individual can see anybody else’s information in a read-only mode. They also worked on the projects page to display the project’s details.
