Loads to do in sustainable St Albans week

Sustainable St Albans week runs from Saturday 21st April to Sunday 29th April 2018 and there is loads to do. Over a hundred largely free events will be on all week for you to come and enjoy whether you are living in St Albans or Harpenden or are considering moving here.  

The Sustainable St Albans events are run by local community groups, businesses, faith groups and schools. The week is all about raising awareness of living more sustainably and taking care of the environment.  It is organised by a partnership of Sustainable St Albans (formerly Transition St Albans)  and St Albans Friends of the Earth and is supported by St Albans District Council.

More and more people are beginning to be really interested in making their homes their work-places, their community groups and schools more environmentally sustainable. The week shines a light on a whole range of environmental issues that ordinary people want to and can make a difference with.

Over 2,000 local people have attended the event in a single year in the past with many more involved in their schools. Sustainable St Albans has already demonstrated that the residents of St Albans, Harpenden and the surrounding villages really do care about creating a sustainable district. Many local people are keen to make changes to support the environment and look after the local environs.

The opening event for Sustainable St Albans week is “Our Planet, Our Future” at Rothamsted on Saturday 21st April offering a  wide range of short talks on environmental topics from 1pm-7pm. 

Through the week there are loads of events to choose from, and you will find all the details in the programme online at www.sustainablestalbans.org. The finale is a practical skills-sharing day called the  “Know How Festival” in Fleetville on Sunday 29th April. Come along to learn skills that will help you learn more sustainably in day-to-day St Albans and Harpenden life from 10am-4pm.
