Mission Statement

Our mission at One Community is to help people create a better world by demonstrating a more sustainable and enriching way of living and open source everything required for replication. We are a 100% volunteer non-profit and non-governmental organization. We are creating open source resources and solutions for food, energy, housing, social architecture, education, economics, stewardship, and more.


Our vision is to usher in a new age of cooperation, collaboration, and sustainability. We do this by demonstrating what’s possible, open sourcing and free-sharing the blueprints, and making modular or total duplication easy enough, affordable enough, and attractive enough so that positive and sustainable world-change will spread on its own.
