The UNESCO status helped the UNESCO Chair in Education for Pluralism, Human Rights and Democracy within the School of Education at Ulster University to attract £1.5 million from Irish American philanthropist Chuck Feeney – one of the highest grants made to the Social Sciences at the university at the time of the launch.

“I would highlight how highly significant the UNESCO Chair was in raising the profile of the work that I was involved with in Northern Ireland through funding that I received shortly after the Chair was officially launched’ Alan tells us. ‘I think Chuck Feeney’s representatives were aware of the work that I was involved in but also realised that the establishment of this UNESCO Chair was an acknowledgement and recognition of that work and also raised the profile to a level that you know was worth investing in. I think whenever we did reports on how we made use of that funding, it gave us tremendous leverage to engage with other funders and other partners.”

The 2020 National Value for UNESCO to the UK Report & Programme

The National Value Report seeks to capture the economic and wider intangible value of the UK network of UNESCO designations. It finds that the network is adding significant value to our economy and society and recommends how this value can be enhanced.

The National Value of UNESCO Designations to the United Kingdom Report shows how UNESCO is bringing sites, people and communities together, and creating and delivering value for the United Kingdom. It finds that the vibrant network of UNESCO sites in the UK, its Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies are contributing in three main areas: they contribute financial value, they make a rich and creative contribution to the UK’s environment, culture and communities and contribute to the attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
