In Sir Peter’s final log on board Seamaster he wrote:
“We want to restart people caring for the environment…through adventure, through participation, through education and through enjoyment.”
These visionary words now guide BLAKE in its role: to inspire and prepare people to lead a sustainable future for Aotearoa.
Each year BLAKE aims to inspire thousands of young New Zealanders to care for the environment through activities and adventures that encourage environmental awareness and leadership, and instill a deeper sense of kaitiakitanga within them.
Like Sir Peter Blake, at the core of all BLAKE’s programmes and events are a spirit of adventure, participation and exploration.
