Solution Model to Create Solution Creating Models
The ultimate accomplishment of solution based thinking should arguably be a self-perpetuating model that creates solution creating models. We are building such a model as self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities to address the pressing problems of our generation while solving the problem of needing even more solutions by open source project-launch blueprinting what is needed to teach others how to create self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities too. A model such as this, specifically created with significant individual appeal and adequate exposure, would become self-replicating and have the potential to transform life as we know it on this planet.
SOLUTION BASED THINKING
By now most people know that the necessary resources and technology exist to feed, house, and provide energy for every person on Earth. Self-replicating self-sufficient teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities will provide a path to put the necessary technology and resources where they are needed most. For this to happen a working initial teacher/demonstration village with widespread appeal is being created. It will be affordable, applicable across a diversity of cultures, easily accessible, it will open source free-share what is needed so that people with average knowledge and little or no experience can duplicate it, and it will have a marketing engine capable of exposing enough people so that duplication by others will begin and exponentially expand implementation of this model around the world.
ONE COMMUNITY’S ROLE
One Community is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization purposed to create the first of these teacher/demonstration villages to help facilitate the shift from where we are now to what we know is possible. Our mission is to provide non-profit leadership, and the necessary demonstration, blueprints, and roadmap for duplication, to recreate our entire world as a cooperative of self-sufficient and self sustainable teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and eventually cities. Our path to accomplishing such a lofty goal: demonstrate, inspire people, open source project-launch blueprint everything needed for replication.
“In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete. That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called.” ~ Buckminster Fuller
Creating a maximally appealing holistic approach to sustainability, One Community is combining food, energy, and construction self-sufficiency with a fulfilled-living model, adult and child education models, recreation integration, and a mentality for “The Highest Good of All.” Our four-phase strategy will demonstrate, share, and invite the world to participate in 7 different sustainable village models and a lifestyle that we believe will be a superior living experience.
By using comprehensive sustainability to demonstrate that a superior living experience based on living for The Highest Good of All is possible, our long-term vision is to inspire a global generation of people helping each other while helping themselves. This will demonstrate a new paradigm of philanthropy and humanitarianism based on people building duplicable teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities all over the world because these communities better meet their individual needs while simultaneously teaching others how to become comprehensively sustainable too.
GIVING: REDEFINING THE SUSTAINABILITY INDUSTRY
Foundational to our solution based thinking model for creating self-propagating teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities is open source project-launch blueprinting. With this approach we intend to redefine the sustainability industry as an open source and free-sharing industry by leading this movement and becoming the top provider of open source and free-shared information in the world within 6 months of moving onto the property. We are continuously free-sharing everything we do and we exist to maintain ourselves as a permanent solution based thinking organization and sustainability think tank, functioning for The Highest Good of All and teaching others how to do the same.
As we clear away the skepticism, mystery, and perceived roadblocks to comprehensive sustainability we will expand the sustainability industry to include the largest demographic available: the mainstream public. This will be accomplished because we will have made successive models easier, more affordable, and more attractive than the alternatives. Also, whereas we are working through the myriad of details necessary to build this first village, future teacher/demonstration communities, villages, and cities will be able to build off our our successes, tools, tutorials, free blueprints, and with our help.
By doing this we will set a new open source standard for the sustainability industry as a whole. People will have free access to the information they need and know exactly where to turn if they get stuck.
CREATED FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD OF ALL
Our four-phase strategy for global change will provide a significant increase in business for all existing sustainability related industries. While our purpose is to provide everything we possibly can to make replication of One Community Possible in whole or in parts, success specifically hinges upon engaging the mainstream. In doing this we see ourselves providing what 80 out of every 100 people will need to duplicate all our comprehensive sustainability components. The remaining 20% (20% of a vastly larger market than is currently interested in sustainability) will be seeking help and represent a new and much larger market for the existing industry.
We see this as a significant component of supporting the global movement for The Highest Good of All because it means we will be continuously adding to the success and prosperity of other organizations engaged in sustainability and conducting business for The Highest Good of All too – exponentially growing the resources and success of these businesses and concepts for the benefit of the entire human organism.
