Summary Details

Do you care about the environment and want to make a difference?

Join us for a week long leadership development adventure for 55 secondary school students passionate about the environment. You will have the opportunity to address topical environmental issues facing our country, and develop strategies to address them. 

BLAKE Inspire 2020 will be in Waikato and will focus on different environmental issues related to climate change, our oceans, freshwater and biodiversity. By working with other up and coming youth environmental leaders, you will leave BLAKE Inspire fired up, with improved leadership capabilities, inspired and ready to create change.

  • This fully-funded programme will allow students to learn more about the environmental issues related to climate change, our oceans, freshwater and biodiversity.
  • Develop leadership skills while participating in outdoor activities.
  • Meet and engage with inspiring and informative speakers, including experts from the Ministry for the Environment, BLAKE alumni, local and national politicians, business and community leaders, and like-minded peers.
  • Delegates to BLAKE Inspire are eligible to join future BLAKE Expeditions as student voyagers.
  • BLAKE Inspire is an annual opportunity open to young New Zealanders thanks to a number of BLAKE supporters including programme sponsor, The Ministry for the Environment, and our Foundation Partner Westpac.
