Sponsor SustFest21

About the festival

2021 will be the fifth award-winning Sustainabilty Festival, which first began in 2015. It grew until the last festival in 2019 engaged over 14,000 people. 

SustFest21 will be different, and we will focus on Covid-safe activities – whether virtual events, online sessions, and socially distanced events – where government guidance allows. 

The festival is run by a partnership of Sustainable St Albans and St Albans Friends of the Earth, and funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, local grants and sponsorship from businesses and other organisations.  We are hugely grateful for the Crowdfunder donations that are coming in.
