Sir Peter Blake's life as a yachtsman, adventurer, leader and
guardian of the environment was tragically cut short on 5 December
2001. But those who knew and loved this great New Zealander vowed
his work would live on, and out of this emerged a determination to
forge a living legacy which stayed true to Sir Peter's philosophy
of 'deeds, not words'.
vision is not enough. Change comes through realising the vision and
turning it into a reality.Sir Peter Blake
The Trust was launched on 25 June 2004, and the Government
confirmed a $3.8 million endowment - representing a dollar for
every New Zealander - for the creation of an organisation which
would honour Sir Peter's leadership, love for the environment, and
dedication to young people.
Through its programmes the Trust strives to
honour Sir Peter's legacy by inspiring his visionary leadership
qualities in all New Zealanders and keeping his spirit and values
alive for future generations.
