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!
  • For the salvation and future prosperity of mankind, I believe we must embrace nature. Work with, not against and harness, not shut out the natural forces.


    Urban environments are becoming the most populated regions around the globe. It is crucial these vastly increasing populations become more in tune with the consequences of energy and resource consumption and how minimise waste. All of our everyday lives, our interactions with commerce and infrastructure, can either contribute negatively or positively to the future. It is possible to become jaded through an urban lifestyle, therefore increasing the interaction one has with nature and green spaces can reconnect and reawaken the awareness of one’s affinity to serenity.


    If urban societies, hubs of business and industry, can enhance integrating with ecosystems, I believe as a nation we can expand our understanding of how to live sustainably through our everyday choices, which will naturally extend to more rural locations as business-as-usual transforms from the singular economic bottom line to the social, ecological and financial benefits of the triple bottom line.
