What we do
We are Sustainable St Albans charity. 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

St Albans District Council generously awarded us a grant to help fund our new Community Engagement project.
Alongside our annual #SustFest, we host a wide variety of events throughout the year.
From campaigning for the Council to declare a climate emergency to setting up regular ‘Playing Out’ streets, we’re involved in multiple local projects.
