BLAKE Inspire is an action-packed week for Year 11 – 13 students who will 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 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 spend the week with other like-minded young people, leaving BLAKE Inspire with new friends, stories, and action plans to start driving positive change within their own schools and communities.

Applications close Sunday 3 March, 11.59 pm. To apply visit BLAKE’s website or apply HERE.
