Sustainable World Building - One Community Weekly Progress Update #127



“Sustainable world building is a process of building (and regenerating) our planet to meet humanity's needs for the foreseeable future. If this is to be achieved, we need a holistic model that recognizes the interrelationship and interdependence of the areas that are foundational to a happy and thriving population. Food, housing, energy, education, recreation, and economics are key areas for such a model. One Community calls simultaneously addressing these areas for the benefit of all people and life, living and creating for The Highest Good of All. This is the August 30th, 2015 edition (#127) of our weekly progress update detailing our team's development and accomplishments.”
