Sustainable St Albans is running a competition for under-18s to share how they are living sustainably under lockdown.

The group is asking for children and teenagers to send in photos, artwork or pieces of writing inspired by their activities – such as riding bikes more, growing fruit and vegetables, cooking with leftovers and listening to bird song.
