A group of ordinary people

trying to make St Albans District

a more environmentally sustainable place to live.

What we do

We are Sustainable St Albans. Together, as ordinary people, we find positive and creative ways to act locally

across St Albans, Harpenden and villages

to raise awareness and address the challenges of climate change, live more sustainably, and move towards a low-carbon economy.

Sustainable St Albans is a member of the UK-wide Transition Network
