The 2011 Space Report: ‘The Authoritative Guide to Global Space Activity’ was published on 16 May 2011 by the Space Foundation. This Report mentions the UNESCO ‘Open Initiative on the Use of Space Technologies to Support the World Heritage Convention’ as an outstanding example of space for Governance, Education and Infrastructure.

The Space Foundation was founded in 1983 and has since become one of the world's premier non-profit organizations supporting space activities, space professionals and education. The Foundation's education programmes have touched teachers in all 50 U.S. states and Germany. It conducts the premier event for space professionals worldwide: the National Space Symposium.
UNESCO has collaborated with the Foundation in the past, notably by organizing joint capacity building workshops within UNESCO’s ‘Space for Heritage’ activities.
