The festival encourages community groups, businesses, schools, street groups, and faith groups to organise Covid-safe, environmentally sustainable events and activities for their local communities during the two weeks of #SustFest21 #StaySafe. The aim is to inspire residents across the district to live more sustainably, do practical things to care for the environment and #BeKindToThePlanet.
The festival is organised by a working group of volunteers from Sustainable St Albans, St. Albans Friends of the Earth, and local residents passionate about environmental issues. In 2019 around 14,000 people took part in events across the district. Find out more about the 2021 festival here.
2021 is a fantastic year to get involved in the festival, as the UK will host the Global Climate Conference (COP26) in Glasgow in November. Find out what you can do for the climate and our environment by taking part this year.
