Applications for the Youth EnviroLeaders Forum (YELF) 2019 are open!

The Sir Peter Blake Trust and The Ministry for the Environment are seeking 55 year 11-13 secondary school students passionate about the environment for a week-long leadership development adventure! They will have the opportunity to address topical environmental issues facing our country, and develop strategies to address them. YELF 2019 will be in Waikato and Rotorua and will focus on different environmental issues related to climate change, our oceans, freshwater and biodiversity. By working with other up and coming youth environmental leaders, delegates will leave YELF fired up, with improved leadership capabilities, inspired and ready to create change.

  • This fully funded programme will allow students to learn more about the environmental issues related to climate change, our oceans, freshwater and biodiversity.
  • Develop leadership skills while participating in outdoor activities.
  • Meet and engage with inspiring and informative speakers, including experts from the Ministry for the Environment, Sir Peter Blake Trust alumni, local and national politicians, business and community leaders, and like-minded peers.
  • Delegates to YELF are eligible to join future Young Blake Expeditions as student voyagers.

Applications close 22 February 2019. Because the application process is different this year, we are encouraging students to not leave it to the last minute! More information and to submit applications go to https://sirpeterblaketrust.org/youth-enviroleaders-forum
