BLAKE inspire is a week-long leadership development adventure for 55 secondary school students passionate about the environment. The students have the opportunity to address topical environmental issues facing our country, and develop strategies to address them. It was formerly called the Youth EnviroLeaders' Forum (YELF).
Many of these leaders have gone on to do unbelievable things in the communities they represent such as taking part in the youth-led Climate Challenge Conference.
These students aren’t future leaders – they’re leaders today.
Find out more about the programme on the Blake website.
This year there will be two Blake Inspire programmes —one in the Waikato and the other in Auckland.
