At this link
you can find the first P2P Urbanism World Atlas
, listing P2P urbanism initiatives in the world. On that same webpage you can register to the P2P-U mailinglist, and participate in the process of defining P2P Urbanism and signal new P2P-U initiatives to be put on the Atlas.
Down here a definition of P2P Urbanism in English (translations in other languages will follow asap). As this is a participated work, this is the 7th version, that can be modified and integrated.
