What is ‘Engage’? A section designed for you

We want you to engage with us. If you are organising an event or activity which aligns with UNESCO’s vision and mission, you may wish to apply for UNESCO Patronage. UNESCO Prizes cover the fields of education, science, culture, and communication and information. Your project may be eligible for one of the 30 plus UNESCO Prizes. You may be interested in providing expert advice, or have a project that you wish us to consider as a partner. Or your organisation may be interested in working towards joining the UNESCO Global Network as a designation, such as a Global Geopark, a Biosphere Reserve, Creative City or World Heritage Site.

Take a look at our Accreditation Policy to find out where you may fit in. There is a vigorous set of criteria that you must comply with. We are here to provide support and advice for those eligible.
