This Commons Transition category relates to projects that are specifically or more loosely related to a commons-oriented transition for our political economy, society, and civilizational model.
"The commons are in the midst of a “double transition,”. On the one hand, the resources at stake are often abundant and immaterial—think personal data generated by social media networks or activity sensors—as opposed to scarce and material—like water and grazing land."
- Salvatore Iaconesi and Oriana Persico

P2P Foundation Material
- The Commons Transition Plan is based on the FLOK Society Project in Ecuador around 2014. It deals with the setting up of commons of knowledge for all sectors of activity in society.
- The second important document is focusing on urban commons, which are at this stage, mostly about mutualizing the distribution of provisioning systems through shared resources. See our report: CHANGING SOCIETIES THROUGH URBAN COMMONS TRANSITIONS, also called the Commons Transition Plan for the City of Ghent. See the original Dutch-language report; also available in a [ English translation]
- Our third important report examines the socio-technical infrastructures, at cosmo-local scale, needed for this transition in our productive and (pre)distributive systems.
