UNNES is a conservation-minded university. Conservation perspective is a model that must be followed and imitated. It is a belief that underlies a point of view and treats its problems as the focus of attention (conservation).
Conservation perspective become an agreed reference and are used by the UNNES academic community as an academic community. Conservation insight is a system that gives direction and guides attitudes and behaviors in doing something worthy of choice with an attitude and commitment developing in science and building people and their humanity.
The conservation perspective has an important role because the development of global science and technology has a positive impact on growth and a negative effect on society. The negative impacts that arise are 1) the superior values and character of the nation are eroded, 2) the nation’s unique and noble art and culture are forgotten, and 3) environmental degradation occurs even though many natural resource assets have not been managed optimally.
UNNES declared it a University of Conservation to address the social and environmental crisis in 2010. The 2009 academic paper and Rector’s Regulation No. 22 of 2012 explain that the University of Conservation is a university that, in the implementation of its PT Tridharma, refers to conservation principles, which include protection, preservation, and sustainable use of natural resources and cultural arts, as well as environmentally friendly insights. The implementation of the Tridharma UNNES prioritizes and pays attention to these conservation principles or perspectives.
UNNES is obliged to promote conservation-minded development. The national conservation reference includes three conservation activities: 1) protection of life support systems, 2) preservation that includes conservation, and 3) sustainable use. In simple terms, conservation activities include three elements of interrelated activities, namely protecting and saving , studying, and utilizing . UNNES Development strategy in the future to realize the vision of UNNES 2040 refers to these three things.
