The Governance Commons The Commons, a "CL3" Community The Commons is organizing a Challenge-oriented, Large-scale, Long-term, Learning (CL3) Community . Through this community, we hope users from myriad backgrounds--civilian government, IGOs and NGOs, business, and the military--from all over the world--will join together to discuss and expand the ideas presented here.

CGI | About Us The mission of the Center for Global Initiatives is to expand global opportunities at UNC through collaborative programs + projects and competitive awards + fellowships that connect people across borders and disciplines. We pursue this goal through a wide range of initiatives such as directing UNC’s Fulbright Program, funding faculty to develop new global courses, empowering students to conduct ambitious research and internships abroad, and connecting North Carolina K-12 classrooms with UNC’s global resources.

Imagine the Gulf coast of the United States, and you likely envision a dolphin jumping playfully out of the water – it is an image that the tourism industry has carefully cultivated for decades. But that picture has been replaced by the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill which dumped millions of barrels of crude oil into the waters of the Gulf where the dolphins live and play. Many pictures were broadcast around the world of dolphins trying to jump through the oil slick that spread on the water’s surface, and there has been great concern raised about the effect on wildlife of the toxic chemicals dispersants that were dumped into the water in unprecedented quantities in an attempt to break up the oil. environmentalframing.org
