UNESCO and other recognition

- Achieving international recognition for thing sites, including serial nomination on UNESCO World Heritage List.

The THING Project aimed to explore options for a future nomination process of a serial inscription of North Atlantic thing sites on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

The report provides:

  • background to why we considered UNESCO nomination
  • an introduction to UNESCO World Heritage Status
  • what is required to be accepted on the UNESCO World Heritage List
  • an overview of the process required to achieve serial nomination
  • a reflection on the research, discussions and UNESCO workshop
  • consideration of what we should do
  • a summary of potential options for achieving international recognition for thing sites.
