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(s) to achieve a common objective. Collectives are also characterised by attempts to share and exercise political and social power and to make decisions on a consensus-driven and egalitarian basis. Collectives differ from cooperatives in that they are not necessarily focused upon an economic benefit or saving (but can be that as well).

A commune or intentional community, which may also be known as a "collective household", is a group of people who live together in some kind of dwelling or residence, or in some other arrangement (eg. sharing land). Collective households may be organized for a specific purpose (eg. relating to business, parenting, or some other shared interest).

Collective consciousness is a term created by Frenchmarker social theorist Émile Durkheim that describes how an entire community comes together to share similar values.

The term "collective" is sometimes used to describe a species as a whole—for example, the "human collective."
