UNESCO President: “Princess Rani Vanouska T. Modely, I can assure you of my Engagement for all our member states”

A game full of passion and emotion. A game where everything can change in 30 seconds. A game called football. I can proudly say he is the “insider” of the sports world. Football’s popularity is growing rapidly. Football can be considered a breath of fresh air. Various football academies are trying to increase the trend through competitions and training programs for children.

 Who is Rani Vanouska T.Modely ?

Rani Vanouska T. Modely is no stranger to the world of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. She is a model, philanthropist engaged for the children. She was officially appointed as a member of the French National Commission for UNESCO as a representative of goodwill since 2015, but she wanted to do more than just acting in the cruel world of politic.

In November 2015, President Daniel Janicot signed cooperation between the French National Commission for UNESCO and Rani Vanouska T. Modely, which aims to promote and support the creative industries in France. She becames a good will ambassador, special advisor to the president.

In January 2016, in response to a November request, Rani Vanouska Modely and the French National Commission signed an additional contract under which Vanouska Modely was appointed Chief Delegate of the French UNESCO circle for a four-year, extendable period.

Rani Vanouska Modely has carried out many activities related to the work of the French National Commission for UNESCO (under the auspices of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs), including Several meetings with heads of industry in France to promote UNESCO values and programs.

This collaboration with UNESCO enabled Rani Vanouska Modely to develop an official project with the support of Member States in 2018 to register football as UNESCO’s Intangible Heritage.

She wanted to get off the bench and get into the game! Building on her experience with the National Commission for UNESCO, she became the Founder, President of Football World heritage.

Princess Rani Vanouska Modely, as President of the World Heritage Organization for Football, is spearheading UNESCO’s campaign with the support of many personalities to recognize football as part of the world’s intangible cultural heritage.

Rani Vanouska Modely requested to the member states to independently develop the concept of football as a World Heritage based on UNESCO’s objectives and  propose the nomination of football for recognition as an Intangible World Heritage by UNESCO.

In 2019, in partnership with Forbes magazine, they published the TOP 100 football world leaders, including Gianni Infantino, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Emmanuel Macron, Prince William etc..   to announce officially this UNESCO football candidacy.

With the support of Jacques Séguela (HAVAS), campaigns have been launched for the classification of football as an intangible cultural heritage. Several personalities and experts agreed to join an advisory committee to support the project. An African Member State submitted a formal request to UNESCO to support the project in 2018 and nominated Rani Vanouska Modely as Ambassador Delegate to formally implement this nomination in a letter addressed to Audrey Azoulay, Director-General of UNESCO. The project had gathered many sports figures, including Antoine Griezman, Arsene Wenger who publicly pledged his support.

To achieve this goal, Rani Vanouska Modely, selects ambassadors from every country in the world to garner the support of each of the 185 countries that aim to be the most historic nominations to UNESCO to be voted with the intangible UNESCO committee in 2 years.

 Princess Rani Vanouska Modely’s campaign aims to gather the 193 UNESCO member’s states for peace between all of us.

Princess Rani Vanouska Modely’s campaign to make football a part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List is scaling new heights each day. After attracting attention from global sportspersons, business magnets and more from all over the world, the Peace Activist is aiming to gain support from 185 nations by signing the Football World Heritage Pledge. The idea is to gather all the countries for the FIFA World Cup 2022 to make Football as a universal symbol that belongs to all the people around the World.

In an official letter the UNESCO Arabic group gathering the 22 states members said : “Like you Princess Rani Vanouska T. Modely, we believe that football is a universal vehicle for peace, sharing and respect that deserves to be recognized as such at the global level, within the framework of a bid that you hope will bring together the greatest number of countries.”

The ambition of your project deserves to be supported by FIFA and the national federations of each of the countries concerned, and to be known by as many people as possible. You can count on our kind support.

September 2018, after the formal launch of her project, Rani Vanouska  Modely received an official letter from the French Delegation of UNESCO addressed to Rani Vanouska  Modely confirming that the delegation was ready to support her project.

Several member states have already pledged their support to the Football World Heritage project, not least an African Permanent Delegation for UNESCO in March 2018 who launched the candidacy letter attached addressed to Audrey Azoulay with the nomination of Princess Rani Vanouska T. Modely as the ambassador delegate to the state members of UNESCO for this candidacy.

April 27th 2020, Princess Rani Vanouska Modely established a partnership between Football World Heritage and Peace and Sport, under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert of Monaco.

As President of Football World Heritage, Princess Rani Vanouska Modely was invited by the Qatar 2022 Supreme Committee in Doha, to attend the FIFA World Clubs Cup 2021, and met various directors, Football people like other sports personalities, who supports the project and signed the Football World Heritage pledge, including Arsene Wenger who is today Chief of football development at FIFA.

Princess Rani Vanouska Modely have been from the outset and since, that the candidacy is for football to be recognised as intangible patrimony, which UNESCO itself notes has evolved as a concept “to embrace living culture and contemporary expressions”. The approach is consistent with the Convention of 2003. (same as recently proposed by the UAE and Oman, chidaoba wrestling in Georgia, Korean martial arts, or charreria equestrianism in Mexico, all of which have been on the list of intangible cultural heritage.)
