Transformational and sustainable change will happen if enough people participate. We’re addressing the “transformational change” component with a self-replicating model capable of affecting the entire planet. We are addressing the “sustainable change” component with an evolution of sustainability that combines physical sustainability with emotional sustainability to create a more holistic and desirable approach to how people live. We are open source sharing it all 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 February 27th, 2015 edition (#104) 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 @2:17
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:44
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:57
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @7:13
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @8:21
One Community is facilitating transformational and sustainable change 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 finished brainstorming the bullet points for the final 50% of the Technology and Innovation section of violet.
In addition to this we finished the second 50% of the “Human Body” themed lesson plan webpage. This lesson plan is now done and can be used to teach all subjects, to any learning level, in any learning environment using the central theme of “The Human Body.”
Behind the scenes, we finished the next 20% of the next lesson plan we’re working on with the central theme of “Civilization.” This bring us to 75% complete with this lesson plan.
One Community is facilitating transformational and sustainable change 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 the first complete recipe from Benjamin Sessions to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan. You can see this recipe and photo here where we’ve also created a separate section for omnivore meals that can be made vegan, versus the section below that is vegan meals that can be made omnivore.
In addition to this, Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your QB?) created this new Fiber Smoothie recipe that we also added to the vegan section of the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan:
One Community is facilitating transformational and sustainable change 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 laying out the specifics for the Open Source Murphy bed furniture assembly details behind the scenes. These are part of the Earthbag Village and the crowdfunding campaign plan and new updates included cutting lumber and labeling pieces for the smaller shelf and ladder and assembling the smaller shelf and ladder. What you see here is all this behind-the-scenes work-in-progress. We estimate we are now 45% complete with what is needed for the website.
Also behind the scenes we finished another 15% of the earthdome window and door framing reformatting details needed before moving these specifics to the website. This brings us to 90% complete with this work.
We also updated all the headers for the crowdfunding campaign open source details pages. Here’s collage of all these newly designed headers:
And we updated the material-cost details on the Earthbag Village Materials page and added the Furniture cost details, which you can see here:
In addition to this, we redesigned the eco-bathroom and shower open source hub. Here is a picture of the new additions there:
And we added another 20% of And we the amazing work and calculation details from Samuel Soroaster (Permaculturalist and sustainable designer from Green New World). The new sections you see here are sections 2-4 including Primary Plumbing details, Hot Water System details, and the details of the Greywater Recycling for UHET Flush Toilets. We’d say we are now about 30% complete with adding the ongoing work Samuel has been doing over the past couple of months working with us.
And the children’s dome CAD design you see here. Both domes feature double beds and and open floor plans for maximum central space availability.
One Community is facilitating transformational and sustainable change 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 15% of the thermostatic shower valve and heat lamp energy and water savings open source page. This was using the research and work of Ron Payne (Mechanical Engineer and HVAC / Thermal Designer) and included creating the header, basic layout, and the What and Why sections of the page. These systems will be used for both the Duplicable City Center and the Earthbag Village.
One Community is facilitating transformational and sustainable change 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:
One Community was also featured on Thrive this past week, hosted by Foster Gamble. We shared the interview with the founders of The New Earth Nation and the Ingenuity Innovation Center and you can watch the whole overview video on our written blog:
And we added the beautiful work of Paige Allison Donatelli (Graphic Designer and Owner Operator of Namaste Living in a Material World) to the One Community Pledge page, including a redesign of this page and a plan to feature it next week:
Behind the scenes, Jin Hua (Internet Marketing Expert and Web Developer) also helped us setup individual page editing on our site and created the initial outline for a video tutorial to teach people from other countries with no web design experience how to help us translate the different pages of our site.
