Creating a sustainable global education blueprint that will teach people how to live sustainably anywhere in the world can be accomplished. To truly meet the goals of all people, everywhere, this model will combine physical sustainability (food, energy, housing, etc.) and emotional sustainability (education, economics, recreation, etc.). Open source and free-sharing these as a complete model can make this lifestyle an accessible reality for everyone. One Community is doing this as a path to global transformation 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 April 12th, 2015 edition (#110) 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:
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION @1:57
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:40
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:52
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @7:11
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @7:58
One Community is forwarding a sustainable global education blueprint 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:
Behind the scenes we also wrote another 25% of this lesson plan, bringing it to 50% written completion.
Also behind the scenes, we wrote the first 25% of our next lesson plan with the central theme of “Nature“.
We also added the final 70% of the violet section to the Technology and Innovation Molecule webpage, which you can see here. This molecule is now 98% complete, with a few additional points to be researched and added to provide more examples.
Paige Allison Donatelli (Graphic Designer and Owner Operator of Namaste Living in a Material World) finished another 25% of the image creation for the Open Source lesson mindmap, which you can see here. That brings this mindmap to 50% complete:
One Community is establishing a sustainable global education blueprint 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:
And we did this for our food forest herb plantings hub too:
We also researched and added the final major component to the open source potatoes hub: RECIPES! You can see these new additions here. These first recipe lists will grow as our food experts continue the process of designing the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan for remote village construction.
In addition to this, we added two new tasty recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan: Tortilla Salad and Lentil and Brown Rice Stuffed Red Pepper Salad.
One Community is establishing a sustainable global education blueprint 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 progress on the assembly specifics for the Open Source Murphy bed furniture. This work is happening behind the scenes and what you see here will be part of the Earthbag Village and the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week we finished cutting lumber and labeling pieces for two back shelves and begin exploring a new shelving and ladder design. We estimate we are now 67% complete with this behind-the-scenes work.
Also, behind the scenes, we finished another 5% of the earthdome loft construction tutorial specifics. This work included lining out details for deck install and looking at possible need to change spacing of joists, sorting out screw sizes, and creating what was needed for an engineer to run loft structural calculations. We’re now 60% complete with this behind-the-scenes work.
Scott Thomas and his Shadow Ridge Signature Architecture Program team finished their part of the work putting the complete Earthbag Village components together in AutoCAD. Here is the 2D layout of the complete village created from our 3D Sketchup files:
Sheng Xu (Mechanical Design Engineer) also finished his third round of SolidWorks design specifics for the 3-dome cluster of the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This work included adding the door and window specifics. The colored dots you see above the windows and doors are recycled bottles for adding additional artistic and colored natural lighting:
Nelli Levental (Graphic Designer and College Professor) also created these second concept sketches for the earthship village (Pod 6) featuring a stacked design of two levels providing 40 units… this then evolved into a straight design that will take better advantage of passive solar…. and look like this if built into a hill…. These 2-level earthship inspired designs are expandable and will have a central large-scale kitchen, several shared common spaces, and start with sufficient housing for 60-80 people.
One Community is establishing a sustainable global education blueprint 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 the core team updated the open source indoor/outdoor natural pool and eco-spa page with the plumbing design specifics of Rob Gjerde (Pool Design & Construction Expert and owner of Sorico Design and Consulting). You can see these additions here:
Mateus Barretto (Civil Engineering Student specializing in Hydraulics) also finished the calculations for the Duplicable City Center water catchment specifics including pipe sizing and selection that you can see here:
One Community is establishing a sustainable global education blueprint 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 finished creation of the Ocean Preservation page of the People’s Agenda 21 site. This page covers resources for anyone interested in proactive action for protecting and preserving our oceans:
We also finished creation of the Biotechnology Management page of the People’s Agenda 21 site. This page covers resources for anyone interested in proactive action with biotechnology in relation to food, supporting human health, protecting the environment and more:
Last but not least, Vassili Biserov (Writer, Poet and Translator) finished the first translation of one of our pages into another language: The Open Source Hoop House Construction Page. You can see this page and all of Vassili’s wonderful work here:
