We take young New Zealanders on life-changing adventures that follow in the footsteps of Sir Peter Blake.

Our experiential programmes are designed to inspire the next generation of New Zealand’s leaders, adventurers and environmentalists. We offer programmes that both 'ignite the spark' and inspire people to care for the environment, as well as 'life-changing' programmes that prepare them to lead environmental change. 

As they learn through the kinds of adventures few of us are likely to experience, they develop environmental insights, awareness, and passion that will be pivotal not only to their own future, but indeed to the future of our planet.

We offer a range of programmes including:

Youth EnviroLeaders’ Forum - A week-long adventure for environmentally passionate secondary school students

Blake Inspire- A week-long adventure for environmentally passionate secondary school sailors

Young Blake Expeditions - A once in a lifetime opportunity to voyage to remote and environmentally significant areas

Blake Ambassadors - 18-25 year olds are offered environmental leadership opportunities to work on projects with our partners NIWA, DOC, Antarctica New Zealand, the Antarctic Heritage Trust and Tara Expeditions.

Environmental Educator- An opportunity for a secondary school teacher to work with the Trust for a term and take part in our Young Blake Expedition

NZ-VR Virtual Reality - An educational programme to inspire students nationwide to care for the environment and take action to protect it 

Experiential Learning

We know that environmental issues are becoming more and more complex. Our world will require leaders who don’t just understand these science and conservation challenges but are able to effectively communicate and influence their peers and fellow Kiwis to enact change.

Our programmes provide hands on experiential learning combining three critical elements: education, environmental knowledge, and how to lead change.
