Origin: [L. collectivus: cf. F. collectif.]
A collective is a group of entities that share or are motivated by at least one common issue or interest, or work together on a specific project to achieve a common objective. Collectives differ from cooperatives in that they are not necessarily focused upon an economic benefit or saving. There may be some issues with meaningfully describing the qualities of a collective.
