Sustainable global energy access is possible through an open source network of sustainable teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities. One Community is designing the foundations for this and including open source and free-shared tutorials covering food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more.

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 August 18th, 2019 edition (#334) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’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:

One Community is facilitating sustainable global energy access 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 week the core team finished the rest of the content for the most sustainable insulation options page. This week we added the Resources, Summary, and FAQ sections. You can see all of these additions here and this brings this page to 100% complete!
Brianna Olsen (Sustainability Researcher) also completed her 10th week as a member of the team. This week she continued research for the most sustainable faucet options by formatting her past work into the existing table and continuing the research and refinement process on the remaining company products. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is facilitating sustainable global energy access 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 week Yuqiao Zhang (Architectural Designer/Drafter) completed his 11th week helping update the City Center AutoCAD and SketchUp files and designing the rainwater harvesting system. This week he finished the 3D gutter system design, updated the calculation for the new rainwater harvesting system, picked proper products with sufficient capacity, and updated the Living Dome restroom designs to provide ADA bathrooms and shower enclosures.
Ron Huang (Mechanical Engineer) continued with his 15th week working on the Energy Modeling for our LEED Platinum certification and City Center open source HVAC design tutorial. This week he continued revising and testing the new hydronic HVAC system. You can see some of this work here.

The core team also continued developing the behind-the-scenes content for the Open Source Permaculture Design page. This week’s focus was formatting everything written so far and adding in the SWOT analysis details. You can see some of this work here.
One Community is facilitating sustainable global energy access 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 component of One Community is about 95% complete with only the Open Source School Licensing and Ultimate Classroom construction and assembly details remaining to be finished. With over 8 years of work invested in the process, the sections below are all complete until we move onto the property and continue the development and open sourcing process with teachers and students – a development process that is built directly into the structure of the education program and everything else we’re creating too:
Guy Grossfeld (Graphic Designer) continued with week 5 of his work adding people and object additions to the redesigned and re-rendered sections of the Ultimate Classroom. Here are the last two drafts from guy, they show two more main-room perspectives.
One Community is facilitating sustainable global energy access 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 week the core team created our new Privacy Page and cookies compliance footer shown here. This brings us into compliance with the EU Users’ Rights under the new General Data Protection Regulation.
