European Space Agency's Spacehouse concept
Thrivability Solutions Network
Solving Global Pollution, Poverty and their Consequences
Proud supporter of:
Now, take moment and imagine if we combined the best features of the European Space Agency's Spacehouse pictured right, with the SPACE house concept. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first thrival civilization. The need and demand for the solutions offered by the SPACE house will grow exponentially as the world becomes increasingly overpopulated. Everyone, from individuals to mega corporations, to national governments and everyone in between, are invited to design, build and distribute your very own SPACE Houses, making them as affordable as possible.

The TSN's goal is to develop the Ecosystem of Necessities (EoN) Greenhouse; which produces all basic necessities abundantly for a family, including renewable energy:
Renewable Energy Production Cycle Using Compost
The EoN greenhouse is a high efficiency (HE) greenhouse, like those built by Ceres Greenhouse Solutions, modified to include:
The modules are designed to optimize:
All of this empowers a family to stop worrying about surviving, so they can enjoy thriving, together, wherever they live.
Mission: An All-In-One Solution to Pollution, Poverty and their Consequences
The EON Greenhouse is an excellent foundation upon which to build a robust circular economy. How? Most packaging waste for all products is made up of paper and plastic. Most paper is already compostable. Plastic composting bags and other compostable plastics are coming out on the market. If companies could be persuaded (perhaps with new laws) to make all packaging waste for everything we buy, use only 100% compostable materials which degrade completely in the modernized Jean Pain composting system, then this system could:
The EON Greenhouse combines intensive gardening techniques with multi-use plants, to endlessly regenerate all of the: organic food, clean air and water, medicine, construction material, clothing, etc. needed per person; within 1,000 sq ft; cutting groceries, energy, etc. expenses by over half. Automated farming robots can be added to handle all of the planting, growing and harvesting chores. EON Greenhouses can be stand-alone or attached to the roofs and/or sun-side walls of conventional homes.
If there is a shortage of any one element, like energy for example, then another greenhouse module is simply added to achieve a general state of equilibrium. Developing hot-swapable, plug & play food and energy production modules, would add more precision to this state of equilibrium (and the ability to quickly adapt to unforeseen circumstances). An external tree module can be replaced with a wind turbine module and vice versa. A solar panel module can be replaced with a garden planter module and vice versa. Both electrical and irrigation lines can be strategically placed in, on and around the greenhouse to guarantee an ample supply of plants and/or energy, regardless of the season.
The purpose of the Thrivability Solutions Network is to eliminate as many preventable problems as possible and create as many opportunities for responsible human expansion as possible, through the mastery of Closed Ecosystems and through the systematic self-discovery of individuals' natural strengths and talents (see Education). Keeping the status quo, where preventable global poverty, pollution and their consequences are allowed to exist, only holds humanity back, hurts us. Now that we have the capability to produce all products and services to be eco-friendly, in an eco-friendly way, at ever-decreasing costs; there are no longer any excusable reasons to allow pollution to exist. Now that we have the capability to feed, house and clothe everyone on the planet, at a fraction of current costs; there are no longer any excusable reasons to allow famine and poverty to exist. Creating a thrival civilization, will not only teach us how to heal our ecosystem and our civilization's worst problems, but will also provide us with the insights, tools and techniques needed for mastering the construction of CEs and Terraforming: Technologies that are necessary to open up the vast riches of space to humanity:
Vision: The SPACE House - The All-In-One Solution to Global Overpopulation and its Consequences
Voted Idea of the Year 2017 - IdeaExplore.net
The Scalable, Portable, Automatable, Closable Ecosystem (SPACE) House is simply a high efficiency, flat-pack house with enough flat-pack EON Greenhouses included to support its inhabitants. We could mass produce SPACE Houses to reduce their construction costs, then give them away for free to all families: Why? If every family on Earth used one, this could eliminate: global poverty, global pollution, global climate change and all of their associated colossal costs. How? We could apply those colossal savings, along with the revenues from carbon taxes, to pay for those houses. In summary, SPACE Houses could: quickly pay for themselves, generate trillions in savings and guide us towards a prosperous and eco-responsible future:
The SPACE House is the smallest practical version of a self-sustaining, pollution-free living space that reliably regenerates all basic necessities; like a miniature version of a domed city or a space colony. As such, it could even be the foundation upon which to design far less expensive and less complex towns, cities, domed cities, orbital colonies and starships. This is because it does not require any construction and/or maintenance of municipal: power grids, pollution mitigation systems, food generation systems, water works, nor sewage systems. The plug-and-play SPACE House provides all of these on its own. Closed Ecosystems (CEs), like those required for underwater cities and space colonies, may soon be needed to alleviate overpopulation pressures on Earth. If we can master how to thrive in harmony with the very compact and closable ecosystem of SPACE Houses, then thriving in harmony with Earth's much larger and natural closed ecosystem will become very easy. The end goal is to develop portable, all-inclusive, and self-sufficient human habitats of all shapes and sizes where humans can responsibly thrive, here on Earth or, that we can pack up and bring with us to use off-planet.

Humans, like the rest of the natural world, don't want to merely survive or be sustained, we need to grow, to flourish, to thrive! We can build a civilization designed to ensure that our planet and our species will thrive together well into a future free of pollution and poverty.
"Fundamentally thrivability is visionary - it is about co-evolving a future we want rather than avoiding a future that terrifies us. It is about acting with enthusiasm toward an opportunity rather than away from catastrophe. It is about becoming a good ancestor."
