Due to the suspension of campaigning following the Manchester bombing the Better World Hustings has been merged with other hustings that were cancelled and has been moved to St.Albans Abbey at 7pm on Friday 2nd June.

Submit your environmental questions in advance to the Herts Ad and we look forward to seeing you on the evening.

St.Albans Deserves Clean Air

We put up 10 diffusion tubes around St.Albans to test the levels of air pollution. They've been sent off to the lab for analysis - watch this space to find out what we find.

In the meantime, there's lots you can do.
Air pollution leads to about 100 premature deaths each year in our District by contributing to lung, heart, circulatory problems and even cancer and dementia.

Children are particularly at risk - their long term development is affected by early exposure to air pollution.
St.Albans Deserves Clean Air

Take action yourself and email St.Albans District Council now to tell them that clean air is important to you and that you want your council to take effective action.

What a great week it was! Over 100 public events plus lots of events at schools.
Over 2000 local residents engaged with the idea of sustainability.

The week is organised by a group of volunteers from St.Albans Friends of the Earth and Transition St.Albans who raise the money necessary for publicity etc.

The next Sustainable St.Albans Week is being planned for April 2018. Email stalbansfoe@hotmail.com if you're interested in being involved.

When we evaluated last year's SustWeek, you asked for some help to collaborate with each other. You wanted opportunities to meet with other groups to develop creative partnerships and plan shared events. So we have arranged a creative collaboration session to help you do this.

Come along to St.Paul's Church complex on Wednesday 21st June 6pm-8pm ready to discuss your ideas for events, and be open to new ideas.

We will also be asking for your input to our plans for the launch event and the finale.

How can schools help? For lots of information and ideas take a look at our Schools Page - including details on making your own bug hotel.

We're looking for more schools who would like to become more bee friendly. We can help you transform a small piece of land near their school into a flower rich wonderland for bees, bugs and humans to enjoy, or to build a bee and bug hotel using recycled materials.

Is your school up for it? Get in touch at stalbansfoe@hotmail.com

Next meeting:

Tuesday 6th June 8pm at The Crown on Hatfield Rd St.Albans
