Policy Proposals for City as Commons - P2P Foundation

Policy Proposals for City as Commons - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

There are, I believe, four types of commons to distinguish ... The first type is the immaterial commons we inherit, such as language and culture. The second type is the immaterial commons we create.
