The date is set and the working group for SustFest2022 has been meeting…plans are starting to be prepared, fund-raising started… (as usual we have to fund-raise from scratch – so sponsors are wanted!).. and registration for groups wanting to take part in the festival will be open very soon!

Sustainable St Albans charity coordinates the festival and the working group is made up of volunteers representing groups and sectors in the local community. We welcome new people joining the working group, especially people with networks into schools and organisations representing young people.

Dates will be: Sunday 15th May to Tuesday 31st May 2022

From residents’ associations running litter picks or local bike rides; pre-schools running events on reducing single-use plastic; schools holding eco-weeks on recycling; or businesses encouraging employees to use reusable water bottles. Why don’t you organise something for the festival?

There will be art events, talks, walks, tours and exhibitions. Events for children, adults and both. Stuff happens across all faiths and all ages. It helps local communities come together. These events can inform and educate; they can be fun, or inspiring and all of these together!
