Verse 1

We’re coming together, we’re ready to act

Our planet is dying – and that’s a fact.

Love where you live in our district fair

Fix it, don’t throw it, and clean up the air

Remember the future but let’s not despair

Chorus

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

Let’s act NOW together, let’s make our amends

Fly less, walk more, before it all ends

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

Verse 2

Let’s eat sustainable; only shop where you live

Ditching the plastic; re-use, share and give

From water to coffee – or tetrapack

Filling the earth with our waste and disgrace

There is no ‘away’, no other place.

Chorus

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

Let’s act NOW together, let’s make our amends

Fly less, walk more, before it all ends

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

Verse 3

“Our house is on fire” and we’re ready to act

From Extinction Rebellion to Greenpeace and back

SustFest is calling to you and your friends

Let’s act NOW together; let’s make our amends

Fly less, walk more, before it all ends

Chorus

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

Let’s act NOW together, let’s make our amends

Fly less, walk more, before it all ends

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

Verse 4

Protecting our planet – a call from our soul

Stop using the gas – the oil and the coal.

Buildings with solar – can light up our skies

Cycling protects us – let’s say our goodbyes

To diesel pollution and their pack of lies.

Chorus

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

Let’s act NOW together, let’s make our amends

Fly less, walk more, before it all ends

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

Verse 5

Join in with the festival make changes that count

From sustainable living to a green bank account

From St Albans to Harpenden, we’re in it together

From Sandridge to Redbourn its now or never

Protecting our planet ‘s our common endeavour 

Final Chorus

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

Let’s act NOW together, let’s make our amends

Fly less, walk more, before it all ends

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

SustFest is calling to you and all your friends

Let’s act NOW together, let’s make our amends

Drive less, cycle – talk to your friends!

Let’s do it forever, not just at weekends.

END
