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.”

  • 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

  • Who doesn’t want to live in a park? Could we really be so lucky?
  • This concept has the power to pull together the issues of environment, health and social welfare, under one umbrella. It can provide the political muscle to consolidate access to resources, to inspire enterprising initiatives through employment opportunities, where we can actively participate in tending this national park. Why not become shareholders of our home city, creating a place of health and well-being.

  • Massive physical enviromental and psycological benefits for human and wild life
  • Because London has so many parks where people can get out of polluted atmospheres and it is vital that we cherish and sustain them for our and future generations to enjoy.
  • it is vital that the balance of green space is re-established in this dirty city, so we can walk through it barely touching the skyscrapers
  • London already has so many wonderful green areas let’s make sure that they continue to flourish and grow for the sake of our beautiful children, ( and the rest of us!).
  • It’s already very green but the green bits could be better connected, which would be even more beneficial for people and wildlife.
  • I’m originally a Londoner, love all the parks we have they offer such amazing diversity for wildlife and much needed open space for all who live and work in London. I don’t think there is anywhere else in country with so many parks.
