Apply to become a UNESCO Designation

From UNESCO World Heritage Sites to Global Geoparks, the UK has a huge network of UNESCO sites. Discover current opportunities below to become affiliated with UNESCO.

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.
