LESS THAN ONE WEEK TO GO before BLAKE Inspire applications close on Monday 1st March! Yes, we have extended the closing date to help you submit your application!
Together with the Ministry for the Environment we are looking for up to 70 passionate, young environmental leaders (Yr 11–13) to join us for our 2021 BLAKE Inspire programmes.
This year we’re excited to announce we have TWO programmes running: 19-23 April in Waikato; and 11-15 October in Auckland.
#BLAKEInspire is an action-packed week of experiential learning and adventure. Delegates spend the week working with scientists, experts and leaders to develop strong leadership skills, while learning about environmental issues and how to take action.
BLAKE Inspire is fully funded so students just need to bring their environmental passion, commitment and energy!
If this sounds like you, or someone you know, head to our website to find out more and APPLY NOW!
Together with The Warehouse we’re excited to launch our new, sustainable Red Socks for 2021! These Red Socks (75% organic cotton, 22% recycled polyester and 100% lucky!) are available instore and online from The Warehousefor just $5 a pair.
For every pair sold, The Warehouse will generously donate $2.50 to BLAKE to help us continue our environment leadership programmes.
Since 1995 Sir Peter Blake’s Red Socks have become a symbol of backing the kiwi spirit, stepping up and showing the world what great team work and leadership can do to achieve extraordinary things for our nation.
The countdown is on for our fifth #BLAKEExpeditions! On 1 March, fifteen young New Zealanders and five school teachers from around Aotearoa will set sail on HMNZS Canterbury with the Royal New Zealand Navy, marine scientists and environmental leaders for a voyage of discovery to the Kermadec Islands / Rangitāhua.
As one of NZ’s largest fully-protected marine reserves and identified as one of only four pristine marine ecosystems on Earth, we have much to learn from Rangitāhua to help us address climate and ecological challenges now and in the future.
