What is a Collective?

A:

As the BUDs do their work and the network grows, people begin to coalesce around common interests or tasks that need to get done. Such groups can become Collectives (or if they choose to participate in communal living Communities).There are a number of different kinds of Collectives-each has a structure implied by the task to be performed, but no 2 collectives function alike. The basic kinds of Collectives are:

 

Issue/Campaign

 

Alternative Institutions

 

Organizing

 

Community Maintenance Groups

 

Caucuses
