Volunteer – Country Research

Status : Currently not taking applications

About this Project:

  • GoUNESCO’s goal is to make heritage fun and to inspire an appreciation for heritage everywhere – tangible or intangible, cultural or natural. We also aim to be a one-stop shop for travel to UNESCO-designated heritage sites.
  • You will be part of our country research team – building a repository of travel information for UNESCO World Heritage Sites for one or more countries across the world.
  • This is a 3 month volunteer project - with flexible start dates.
  • Expect to spend about 10 hours a week over the duration of the project.
  • A Certificate of Participation will be given at the completion of the project.
  • This role is location independent – you can participate from anywhere in the world. Your responsibilities as part of this role do not require travel.

Why You Should Join:

  • As part of our country research team, you will be responsible for editing, reviewing, fact-checking and publishing travel research pertaining to heritage sites around the world.  This research will be viewed by thousands of people interested in heritage and culture – and will reach not just enthusiasts but some of the world’s foremost bloggers, photographers and people in top heritage organizations.
  • Further, the travel sites you will research are among the most remarkable places on earth and are of outstanding universal value.
  • Finally, to recognise your efforts, your name will appear against the UNESCO World Heritage Site profiles you edited.
