Ubiquitous Commons

the commons in the age of ubiquitous technologies

An emancipated society, on the other hand, would not be a unitary state, but the realization of universality in the reconciliation of differences.

Our Network is constantly updating. If you are an individual, an institution or an organization and you are interested in contributing to Ubiquitous Commons, please contact us to receive further information about the project.
