Sustainable prosperity means more of what people want in their lives on an ongoing basis. Sustainable infrastructure combined with a cooperative and collaborative living model can provide this. One Community is creating open source tools, tutorial, blueprints, and resources to help people create this 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 December 12th, 2014 edition (#93) of our weekly progress update detailing the previous week’s development and accomplishments:

One Community is facilitating sustainable prosperity 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 completed the first 25% of the lesson plan mindmap with the central theme of “Movement and Development.” Here it is:
We also completed the first half of the “Movement and Development webpage” that lists the specifics of how to use this lesson and mindmap to teach all subjects to all ages, in any environment, using the central “Movement and Development” theme. Here is a picture of this completed work too:
We also added a new resources section like this to the bottom of all the curriculum and subject pages:
And, behind the scenes, we finished the first 15% of the lesson plan design for “Open Source”
One Community is facilitating sustainable prosperity 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 added another 10% to the new Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan. This developing page shares the wonderful work of Benjamin Sessions and is about teaching people how to affordably and efficiently prepare food in both temporary and permanent kitchen situations until people can produce their own. This will be essential for initial remote village construction as well as the upcoming crowdfunding campaign:
One Community is facilitating sustainable prosperity 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 added a Why and What section to the dome home electrical page that is part of the preparation for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign:
We also created the first half of the materials and image updates for the custom murphy bed furniture. These updates are fixing non-standard sized components uncovered in the materials breakdown we’ve been working on for the past few weeks.
In addition to this, the core team completed this initial assessment of thermal lag testing and calculations through the earthdome walls. This is only the beginning of this work that nobody (to our knowledge) has ever done. The outermost layer you see is the wall, the next layer in is the air within the wall, and the central area is space we are not measuring because the first 16″ of air measurements will give us the information we need. These calculations are being completed as a precursor to more complex calculations we’ll also be doing on the Earthbag Village central Tropical Atrium.
Scott Thomas and his Shadow Ridge Signature Architecture Program team also produced these next steps of putting the complete Earthbag Village into CAD:
And the crowdfunding campaign wet dome into CAD:
Last but not least, here’s a previously unshared update from Dave Walen (Architectural Drafter & Designer and owner of Dave Philip Walen Design) showing the first detailed section of the Straw Bale Village (Pod 2) with straight walls instead of curved walls. What you see is two studios and a two-room unit, all designed for easy modification into different floor plans to meet different needs.
One Community is facilitating sustainable prosperity 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 completed the first 20% of the Building plans for all components section for the Duplicable City Center. This developing page is where we are hosting downloads of all the CAD, Sketchup, and other files so that people will have free access to these files for duplication, modification, and adaptation.
One Community is facilitating sustainable prosperity 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 continued the complete redesign of the homepage to streamline and simplify it to better help people understand what we are creating and how it is a viable strategy for global transformation to sustainability. The focus for this week was the Helping Us page updates you can see here. This page now shares clearly and easily all the ways someone can participate in One Community ranging from internet help and support to joining the Pioneer Team.
In addition to this, we also created new social media imagery and featured our Creating Utopia page and our Large-scale Gardening page:
