In a huge setback for Liverpool, UNESCO has stripped the English city of its World Heritage status. The decision came after concerns about development in the city. Being put on UNESCO’s World Heritage list often leads to huge financial rewards through investments and tourism. But losing it could also have the opposite effect. The Heritage list includes globally recognizable sites including Egypt’s pyramids and the Great wall of China. UNESCO is meeting in China this year to consider 17 other sites to add to its list. But what criteria are they considering for this prestigious honor? In the video published on July 23, 2021, “World Heritage Sites: How are they selected? | Inside Story“, below:
UNESCO confirmed that Stonehenge could be stripped of its world heritage site status, over its concern that a road tunnel, backed by the govt, would damage the area.

Despite warnings, petitions, protests and media coverage, including a video I made in February 2018, the site in England known as Blick Mead, the possible cradle of Stonehenge and ancient Brtish civilisation, has been drilled by Government contractors as they begin planning a new tunnel and flyover to ease traffic at Britain’s best known ancient site. The man who led the challenge against the government was Professor David Jacques, an archaeologist and researcher at the University of Buckingham. He argued that being so close to Blick Mead, which is one of the country’s oldest sites, the planned works would most certainly cause irreversible damage to this World Heritage Site. Now, his fears have become a reality as the ancient site has been drilled by workers to reportedly check the water levels at the site.
