There are many ways to get involved with UNESCO in the UK; whether it be joining the UK National Commission for UNESCO’s expert network, applying for a UNESCO prize, patronage or designation or nominating someone for membership to an international committee.

The UKNC puts all UK nominations for UNESCO accolades through a rigorous peer review process before they are submitted to UNESCO. This is to ensure that all UK nominations are of the highest standard and to provide support and advice to individuals and organisations in accessing UNESCO designation.

The UKNC has set a UK deadline for applying for each of the UNESCO accolades listed below that is a minimum of three weeks prior to the official UNESCO deadline. This is to allow enough time for the peer review process to take place.

If you are thinking of applying for any of the UNESCO accolades listed below, please drop us an email at the earliest opportunity so that we can support you through the application process. Please see the UKNC’s accreditation policy for more details.
