News update! Creative Collaboration and Sharing session

Wed 21st June 6-8pm at St Paul’s Church, Blandford Rd, St Albans AL1 4JP

for Community, Schools, Business and Faith groups
bestideaWhen groups evaluated 2016 Sustainable St Albans Week  a key request was for more sharing earlier in the planning process.

So we’re having a Creative Collaboration Event.  All groups, big and small, are invited to come and share their ideas for SuStAinable StAlbans Week events, and see if natural collaborations evolve out of them.

It doesn’t matter if you have run an event in previous years or not –  if you belong to a local group – of any kind – here is your opportunity to think early about taking part in the next Sustainable StAlbans Week which takes place 21-29 April 2018.

The 2016 week has now finished – thank-you so much to everyone who took part, whether organising an event or schools activity, or taking part! To see lots more photos click here

One thought on “Welcome

  1. Aug. 2016. I was given the booklet “Future Visions 2030” on a visit to the Marshalswick Lane open garden. I’ve read it and thoroughly enjoyed it; if only 2030 could be like that – here’s hoping some of those hopes come to fruition. Well done to all who contributed.
