An adventure for young leaders with a passion for the environment.

Waikato, New Zealand

5 - 9 October 2020

Students (Year 11 - 13)



For young environmental leaders who want to make a difference.

This year 60 secondary school students from all over New Zealand will join us in the Waikato for BLAKE Inspire 2020 – our annual, week-long leadership development programme in partnership with the Ministry for the Environment.

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 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 lots 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 will be 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.
