Upcoming Events

SustFest annual Schools Week

Each year, our annual SustFest Schools Week gives schools and youth groups in St Albans, Harpenden and the villages a chance to get involved with the the St Albans District Sustainability Festival (SustFest). From a full week of eco activities involving every student, to a short activity for the eco group, your school is welcome to plan activities that suit you best. We even have free downloadable assemblies. All we ask is that you tell us you are joining in!

Who we are

Sustainable St Albans has pulled together its local contacts including District representatives of various environmental groups, local school representatives (teachers, governors, PTA and heads) and professional trainers in environmental education. If you have expertise that would be of value to the group and would like to volunteer your time, please do contact us.


We send a termly, or twice-termly, e-newsletter to the majority of the District’s Schools. If you would like your school / eco-representative / PTA  to receive our newsletter, please register here. Not sure if our newsletters are for you? Click here to see previous Sustainable Schools newsletters.
