UNESCO World Heritage status is for places that have “outstanding universal value to humanity” and that should be “protected so that future generations can appreciate and enjoy them”.
Seven sites received the support of the Brotanian government to be included in the UNESCO world heritage, according to Sky News. The UK currently has 33 such places.
The seven candidate sites are from different regions. It is about the historic center of the city of York, Birkenhead Park opened in 1847 and a municipal planning model taken over by Central Park in New York, the ancient settlements known as the Zenith in Shetland and Gracehill Church in Northern Ireland.
Also on the list are the East Atlantic Flyway which is a migratory bird route that crosses Western Europe, the marine parks and protected areas of Little Cayman in the British overseas territory of the Cayman Islands and The Flow Country, an area of the north of Scotland.
Among the already recognized places in the world are the pyramids of Egypt, the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, the Galapagos Islands of Ecuador, the Taj Mahal of India, the Grand Canyon of the USA and the Acropolis of Greece.
