The UNESCO Natural Heritage Program tries to recognize and conserve nature’s most unique, significant and beautiful phenomena. Natural Heritage sites include places with pristine natural conditions and beautiful natural scenery, geological sites demonstrating the natural history of the earth, and areas with ecological harmonies. Since the world’s natural heritage sites are precious assets for humanity, it is every one’s responsibility to educate future generations of the importance of the natural environment, to preserve it, to manage it, and to plan for sustainable development.
- The importance to preserve the world’s natural heritage.
- How to cooperate with international organizations, such as UNESCO.
- Jeju’s unique characteristics and its “Triple Crown”of UNESCO
designations and the relationship with environmental conservation.

세계자연유산은 유네스코(UNESCO)의 프로그램으로 지정되어 보존을 하고자 하는 인류의 노력입니다. 특히 자연유산은 최상의 자연현상을 보이거나, 빼어난 경관을 가지며, 지구의 역사를 간직한 지질유산, 생태계의 중요성이 강조되는 지역 등으로 구성됩니다. 이러한 자연유산은 우리인류의 소중한 자산으로 이를 잘 보존하고 이를 통한 자연환경의 중요성을 교육하며, 어떻게 관리하고 지속 가능한 발전 계획을 세울 것인가에 대하여 논의 합니다.
- 세계자연유산 등 환경의 관리와 보존의 중요성은?
- 유네스코 등 국제기구와의 협조는 어떻게 해야 하나?
- 유네스코 3관왕 제주도의 특징과 환경 보존과의 연계성은 무엇인가?
