Sustainable St Albans

United Kingdom

Transition St Albans organises events, films, and Sustainable StAlbans Week – It’s our district, we love it, and we want to make it sustainable, so people can love it for generations to come!
Together we find positive and creative ways to act locally to address the challenges of climate change, live more sustainably, and move towards/transition to… a low-carbon economy. For more see www.transitionstalbans.org and www.sustainablestalbans.org

Electric Bike Day: in June 2017 we held an Electric Bike Day in Verulamium Park. Several hundred people took part, trying out a variety of electric bikes, from a range of suppliers.

Enviro-Mental Film Fest
As part of St Albans Film Fest we screened Tomorrow, and A Plastic Ocean.

Transition Streets: Transition Streets is a way to bring neighbours together to cut their household bills and their carbon footprint through taking practical action. It’s free to take part, and a great way to turn neighbours into friends. We have run 14 groups across the district and looking for more.

Playing Out
We are working to get Playing Out established in the district, so that streets can close on a regular basis to allow children to play in the street without cars, brining the community together.

Sustainable St Albans Week
