For teachers, senior leadership, PTA or governors of St Albans District schools. Come along to chat with Sustainable Schools volunteers and staff from other local schools about sustainability – share strategies, teaching resources, progress towards eco awards or ways to make your school facilities and actions greener.

Our main topic this time is sustainable travel; hear about the ModeShift Stars Active and Safer Travel Programme from Hertfordshire County Council, and about the experience of local schools.
