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.”

  • I just declared my support for #London to be the world's first #NationalParkCity!
  • A National Park City will create a more pleasant environment that will make people want to walk or cycle.
  • I lived in London while at university there. I grew up in the country side and moved to the capital to study the physics of solar power. After graduating from Imperial as a photovoltaic specialist. I now seek to research urban sustainability through a PhD. I aim to focus on how to overcome the paradox between our everyday life requirements of fossil fuel products and services, that make our lives enjoyable, but how this dependence is destroying our future, by looking at how architecture can mitigate climate change. I think turning the UK capital into a national park sets a fantastic bar for the rest of the globe and is a vital stepping stone to engaging communities of every environment with sustainability. :)

  • As an ex-parks officer in East Staffordshire, I fully appreciate the importance of parks and greenspaces. On my rare visits to London, I have been impressed by the number, quality and variety of their parks. Also anything that raises the profile of greenspaces, now that they are under treat due to ‘austerity’ hopefully will spread out across the country.
