2020 BLAKE Ambassadors
This year, nine talented young New Zealanders from all over the country have been selected to take part in the 2020/2021 BLAKE Ambassador programme.
Through BLAKE’s partnerships with NIWA, the Department of Conservation (DOC) and GNS Science, these young leaders have been given the opportunity to take part in important science and conservation projects.
Placed in remote locations around New Zealand, the BLAKE Ambassadors programme offers unique opportunities to young people to contribute to important projects while advancing their career opportunities.
Each programme is designed to both advance BLAKE Ambassadors’ understanding of some of the big questions and challenges facing the environment and develop their leadership capability to drive positive change and inspire other New Zealanders.
