This award is a recognition of the work that the international NGO carried out through the film "Sanctuary", which embarks the viewer on an expedition to the Antarctic Ocean.

The film director Alvaro Longoria, as well as actors Carlos and Javier Bardem, took part virtually in the award ceremony.

At the event held in the Botin Center, the minister praised Greenpeace's work to "end environmental abuses and draw the public's attention to global problems" for decades.

"Now more than ever we need you to remain independent and to keep the freedom that is part of your DNA," Blanco said.

In his opinion, stopping climate change, protecting biodiversity, preventing land and water pollution, and promoting a world without conflict means "broadening the green consciousness of a society that needs to find a more sustainable, more respectful model for the future with their close and socially responsible environment."

Minister Blanco also thanked the "effort, work, dedication, and sacrifice" of the environmental activists, with whom he maintains a "fluid dialogue and a coordinated work."
