Declare a Climate Emergency!

Add your name to the petition asking our local council to declare a Climate Emergency.

Climate change needs to be a priority for all of us - including our local council. Ask St. Albans District Council to declare a Climate Emergency.

You can sign on the council website now, or on a paper version at any of the Sustainability Festival events.

 

Come and help at the SustFest Market Takeover

Whilst you and I might have got started on trying to reduce our impact on the climate, a lot of people are yet to get started. Our stall at the SustFest Market Takeover on Sunday 19th May will be focused on getting people started on simple actions that are good for them and good for the planet.

Thank you so much if you've already signed up to help. If you haven't, then would you be able to give up just an hour to help get people started on their climate journey?

We particularly need help between 3 and 5pm.

The Market Takeover should be not just informative and interesting, but lots of fun with plenty veggie food and great music. Sign up to help here.
