Sustainability Festival - Sunday 23 May to Sunday 6 June 2021

Also known as SustFest21, the Sustainability Festival 2021 is a two week festival taking place from 23rd May to 6th June 2021 across St Albans District – in St Albans, Harpenden, Redbourn, Wheathampstead, Sandridge, London Colney, Colney Heath, St Michael and St Stephen.

The Festival is organised by the charity Sustainable St Albans in partnership with St Albans Friends of the Earth group. Each year volunteers from the two groups and other interested people create a working group to organise the festival.

The aim of the Sustainability Festival is to get as many local people as possible to create and attend events so they are inspired to live more sustainably. Collectively, we can reduce the carbon footprint of St Albans District, which historically had one of the highest carbon footprints in the country. Together we can improve natural habitats for our district’s animals, birds, insects and plants. As a community we can link up, talk, build friendships, have fun, reduce isolation and strengthen our networks. The sustainability of our district needs us to work together so we can tread as lightly as possible and preserve what we have for future generations.

SustFest21 is the fifth Sustainability Festival.
