|Abstract: ||It is usual to consider lhe environment as a common good, but we are far from having a clear definition of either of lhem: lhe environment and lhe common. Bolh vary according the scope of lhe analysis (world, national, regional, provincial, local), the different societies, and the diverse elements included, and so vary the social perception and action on the environment. On the other hand, new and increasing demands from lhe environment as a common good, as it is the case of preserving biodiversity or landscape among others) might clash with traditional commons. Societies face now a challenge to compatibilize traditional cornmons and the new common: the environment. In arder to study lhe idea of the environment as the new common is relevant to pay attention to legal conceptions and issues related with property rights. A conceptual and historical clarification of the sense and meaning of common is required. In this paper the conceptual problematic of lhe term common for the case of the environment is analyzed, and the change in its social perception within the process of industrialization and globalization. A case study of Navarre (Spain) show how peapie conceive Nature in terms of common good.|
