A group of ordinary people

trying to make St Albans District

a more environmentally sustainable place to live.

What we do

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.

We are a member of the UK-wide Transition Network
