BLAKE Inspire 2023
In 2023 we look forward to welcoming another 100 passionate, young environmental leaders to join us for our BLAKE Inspire programmes.
BLAKE Inspire is a week-long residential leadership development programme in partnership with the Ministry for the Environment and in 2023 we are excited to be running three programmes (up to 35 students per programme):
- 17 – 21 April in Waikato
- 9 – 13 July in Waikato
- TBC August in Auckland
Throughout the week students will work together with scientists, environmental experts, a diverse range of leaders and other like-minded students to help them develop strong leadership skills while learning about topical environmental issues and how they can take action to tackle them.
Participation, adventure and learning are all key requirements for delegates. They will take part in environmental and marine science activities and visit businesses and local organisations to learn about what they are doing to reduce their impact on the environment. Most importantly, students have heaps of fun and leave BLAKE Inspire with new friends, skills and clear action plans to start making positive change within their own schools and communities.
BLAKE Inspire delegates become 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.
