Declare your support

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.”

  • London NEED TO BECOME MORE AND MORE GREEN TO WIN CLIMATE CHANGES and to give more quality of life to people! We people of earth and european people NEED TO HAVE MORE TREES, VEGETATION, FORESTS, GREENWALLS/ GREENROOFS in cities and in rural areas! WE NEED THESE TO SURVIVE IN EARTH!
  • We all would feel better and healthier if we had better green spaces. We need to preserve nature.
  • Green spaces are always valuable but especially so in urban areas. Linking them together for wildlife and people is a great idea which could be used in other towns and cities as well.
  • To protect our green spaces for future generations
  • Megan Townley-Wakelin
  • Because London is so much more than tall buildings, business and pollution. I’d like an emphasis to livable breathable green environment for all to grow as strongly and rapidly as high rise monuments for the selected. Common good is good for all.
  • I had so much fun in Hyde Park when I was a kid. I want to help protect all the green spaces
  • To breathe clean air when I visit – to walk from A to B through parks as much as possible rather than using fume polluted pavements
  • Green-blue environments, nature, are integral to our wellbeing and development in so many interrelated ways, and we are part of nature. As the global population becomes increasingly and necessarily urbanised we must support and prioritise models that reflect and support this interrelationship. Cities don’t have to be concrete or “barren” urban jungles…. I love that London is such a “green” city, and I want this to become an aspiration for all human settlements, and for our way of making it so to become “better” and “better”. Becoming a National Park City in itself would be great for London, and would also serve as a step towards further important work in this area, and as a model and example of it being possible.
  • Our green areas are a valuable resource and need to be properly cared for
  • Because cities can be healthy jungles. Reducing healthcare costs, creating job opportunities for gardeners. London can use a dose of good oxygen.
  • Because we need more green spaces, less air pollution, less motor traffic and we need to take our streets back from vans and cars, making our streets more walking and cycling-friendly. We also need to think about how we can green up every possible inch of London, from roof-top gardens to window boxes, creating pocket parks, building green walls and massively reducing air pollution from petrol and diesel-powered vehicles. I’d also like to see smoking banned in more parts of London, making air cleaner for everyone to breathe.
  • make it a more pleasant place to drive forward this country as part of a global change towards green thinking
  • London to be ahead of other global cities
  • The more green a city is, the better the air quality is. There will also be an abundance of wildlife, beautiful scenery, and improved mental and physical health for residents and visitors.
  • We are lucky to live in an amazing diverse city,with so many green open spaces,rivers,canals and wetlands and where the wildlife and environmental should be appreciated and protected for all our well-being
