Transformational eco-human progress is the movement of humanity towards the ecological mindset capable of creating a sustainable world. One Community is forwarding this movement through open source solutions combining sustainable models for food, energy, and housing with ecocentric models for fulfilled living, education, sustainable economics and earth stewardship. Putting these together as self-replicating teacher/demonstration hubs is what One Community calls living and creating 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 September 27th, 2015 edition (#131) 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:
HIGHEST GOOD EDUCATION: @2:01
HIGHEST GOOD FOOD: @3:20
HIGHEST GOOD HOUSING: @4:28
DUPLICABLE CITY CENTER: @6:04
HIGHEST GOOD SOCIETY: @7:14
One Community is forwarding transformational eco-human progress 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 transferred the first 50% of the written content for the Recreation and Relaxation Lesson Plan to the website, as you see here. This lesson plan is purposed to teach all subjects, to all learning levels, in any learning environment, using the central theme of “Recreation and Relaxation.”
We also wrote the second 1/3 of the Creativity Lesson Plan behind the scenes, bringing the written portions of that one to 65% complete.
And finally, we completed and added the final 25% of the mindmap for the Social Relationships Lesson Plan to the webpage, bringing that to 100% complete! You can see that finished mindmap here:
One Community is forwarding transformational eco-human progress 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:
We also researched and added preparation information for ahipa, maca, arracacha, and cabacui to their respective sections of our open source Large Scale Gardening Hub, which means that portion of our website is now 100% complete!
Last but not least, we added three additional recipes from Sandra Sellani (Vegan Chef and author of What’s Your BQ?) to the Food Self-sufficiency Transition Plan – These recipes are: Red Velvet Protein Smoothie, Tabbouleh-Style pasta, and Polenta Bolognese.
One Community is forwarding transformational eco-human progress 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 what we hope will be the final revision of the Footers, Foundations and Flooring page for the upcoming crowdfunding campaign. This week included placement procedure of polyethylene, creating a more thorough step-by-step instruction guide for the stem and buttress wall construction, detailed narrative re-write for bailing twine tying and barbed wire installation, and adding corbeling data specifics. We’d say we’re now 30% complete with this behind-the-scenes revision.
We also updated the AutoCAD file for the Footers, Foundations and Flooring to include more and updated specifics, and also more colors, to make it easier to understand.
We additionally updated the Tree House Village (Pod 7) with a new header image, an overview of what this village is all about, and the 3-D interactives from Gilberto Martini de Oliveira (3D Animation Designer). We’d say this initial setup puts us at about 5% complete with that page.
On the Straw Bale Village (Pod 2), we discussed behind the scenes the aesthetics of what the central foldable chimney will look like and updated the AutoCAD file to reflect the placement of the winch system that will move it out of the way.
One Community is forwarding transformational eco-human progress 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 the core team continued updating the Sketchup 3-D for the Duplicable City Center. This week we worked on updating the Dining Dome staircase, under-staircase storage, second floor dining area layout and second floor railings. We’d say we’re now 55% complete with the total 3-D update.
We also began transferring the updates from Mike Hogan (Automation Systems Developer and Business Systems Consultant) to the Control Systems and Automation page. You can see this work here and we’d say we are about 20% complete with the total page redesign.
Behind the scenes Lucas Tsutsui da Silva (4th-year Computer Engineering Student), working under Mike’s guidance, also resumed work on one of the room connector decks for the Control System for the Duplicable City Center. You can see this developing here:
One Community is forwarding transformational eco-human progress 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 updating all our help wanted pages and our online marketing campaigns. The initial focus has been for web and graphic design help and we finished the other 50% of redesigning the Seeking Graphic Designers Page that you can see here:
We also updated the Seeking Educators and Creative Minds page and associated help-wanted ads and requests.
Along with this we added a clear request to all our application pages for people interested in joining us as a member of our management team.
Oz Czerski (Lawyer Specializing in Trademark and Copyright Law) also completed the first 50% of writing the Open Source and Copyrights and Trademarking tutorial behind the scenes. What you see here is a snapshot of this work from our collaborative GoogleDoc:
