Blake Inspire 2021 – applications now open for young environment leaders

Career Expo —

Together with the Ministry for the Environment, we are looking for up to 70 passionate, young environmental leaders to join us for our 2021 BLAKE Inspire programme. And this year we are excited to announce we are running two programmes: 19 – 23 April in Waikato 11 – 15 October in Auckland CLICK HERE to watch a video of last year’s BLAKE Inspire.


BLAKE Inspire is an action-packed week for Year 11 – 13 students who spend the week working alongside scientists, environmental experts and a diverse range of leaders to develop strong leadership skills while learning about important environmental issues – such as climate change, marine health, freshwater decline and biodiversity loss – and how they can take action to tackle them.

Participation, a sense of adventure and a willingness to learn are all key requirements as they take part in field trips, marine and science activities and meet with business and community leaders.

Most importantly, students spend the week with other like-minded young people, coming away with new friends, stories and action plans to start driving positive change within their own schools and communities.

Fully funded by the Ministry for the Environment, delegates just need to bring their passion for the environment, commitment and energy!

If this sounds like you, click on the APPLY NOW buttons for more information.

Places are limited and applications for BOTH programmes close at midnight on Friday 26 February.
