Help to make Greater London a National Park City by declaring your support below. 

“In recognition of London’s extraordinary, inspirational and distinctive living landscape; its ability to give, support, home and bring joy to life, and the will of Londoners to unlock its awesome natural potential, we declare that Greater London should become the world’s first National Park City.

World renowned for its cultural heritage and a centre of global commerce, it’s also a place where people and wildlife live together. National Park City status celebrates London’s significant natural heritage, recognises its value in supporting and improving the lives of residents and visitors, and affirms that a healthy environment is essential to the prosperity of any city.

The Greater London National Park City exists in recognition of all that has been done and will be done to conserve, enhance and benefit our natural, cultural and built heritage, and to inspire us all to build a greener, healthier and fairer city.

This Declaration celebrates the extraordinary diversity and interdependence of London’s people, communities, places, wildlife, habitats and ideas. It recognises that all residents and visitors have the potential to positively shape the Greater London National Park City, and that it exists to benefit and be enjoyed by all.

This Declaration calls for a Greater London National Park City Partnership to be established, and challenged to inspire and support individuals, groups and organisations to better enjoy, understand and care for our city; to protect and enhance our natural and cultural heritage, and foster the wellbeing of communities.

In recognition of all this, I give my support for Greater London to be declared a National Park City.”

  • If we want to be able to live in our cities it is important that they are liveable, that is where nature comes in. The benefits of green, nature and water on our health, brain, being more social and to increase the biodiversity is very important. Let London lead the way for more cities to become a National Park!

  • I would like more trees on my street and in my borough. They reduce noise pollution, are great for birds and other small wildlife and insects, help suppress air pollution and in sufficient numbers have been shown improve the health of local residents. (A 2015 study in Toronto showed the higher a neighbourhood’s tree density, the lower the incidence of heart and metabolic disease, and estimated that the health boost to those living on blocks with 11 more trees than average was equivalent to a C$20,000 gain in median income. – from the Guardian, 13 March 2017)
  • So that all living creatures including the humans can enjoy the benefits of the green space. The interaction is vital for our physical as well as mental health not to mention community cohesion.

    My only concern is that successive governments have failed to recognise the importance of the green spaces and have failed to adequately resource the upkeep and maintenance of the same.
  • Our green spaces are vital for our health and happiness, as is the well-bring of as many as possible of the species with whom we share this planet
  • Londoners take trees and green spaces for granted,without them london would be a poorer place.

    Lets encourage londoners to value ,protect and enhance green spaces through awareness of the resource we have.
  • I think it is important for people to appreciate biodiversity in urban settings as well as in remote wilderness areas.
