Thank you!

Thank to everyone who was involved in the Sustainable Seaford Fair. Having so many people get involved made it a very special event.

We hope the fair has helped people to think about small changes we can make that are good for us as well as being good for the planet.

A special thanks to Seaford Head School and OVCA who helped make this event possible.

About the fair

On Saturday 1st June, Seaford’s schools and the local community will come together to discover small changes we can make to live more sustainably.

In partnership with:
Seaford Head School.

Organised by:
Sharing Skills CIC.

What is sustainability?

The 3rd June 2024 represents the day of the year when we would run out of resources if everyone in the world lived and consumed as we do in the UK. If we continue as we are, we would need 2.4 Earths to provide us with the things we want!

Find out more about Earth Overshoot Day.

The Seaford Sustainability Fair is here to give you ideas and knowledge to make changes which are good for you and good for the planet!
