From Australia

This segment was interesting and it was nice to learn about the 2019 Blue Planet Prize winner and his field of research. I found this segment particularly relevant because of its optimistic angle: learning about initiatives striving to bring hope and the impulse for change is undoubtedly refreshing in those times of environmental crisis.

From France

I think it is a laudable effort to motivate scientists who work for the planet. It showed me that the adverse impact of human activity to the environment transcends national boundaries. The program showed broadly the prize winner’s work as going beyond countries, and hopefully could inspire prize aspirants to frame their research and scientific work in a similar fashion.
