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.”

  • As London grows it will need to protect and enhance its green spaces more than ever
  • I just declared my support for #London to become the world's first #NationalParkCity! You can too..
  • I am a long term Londoner, growing up in North East London and now living in South West London, over my lifetime London as developed from an unpleasant post-industrial city into a vibrant and imaginative city. This campaign seems to me to be the natural next step to improve London’s environment for people, plants and animals and to continue this virtuous trend of improvement and innovation to bring the natural world and the well-being of its citizens together in one of the worlds truly global cities.
  • I am currently in the process of moving to London to start my postgraduate degree. Having done my undergraduate at the foot of the Snowdonia Mountain range in a little sea side town called Bangor, I am surprised at how much I miss the greenery. Although London is a very green city, nothing beats the fresh air of the country side and the taste of the water that runs from the taps there and in every other part of the country that I have been to (I did not expect the tap water here to taste different, kind of creamy).

    Now more than ever it is important to improve the quality of life in London as many (like myself) are flocking here. And if we aren’t aiming to improve our own quality of life we need to help the wildlife that call this place home too. Hedgehog tunnels, windowsill flowers for the bees, chewing gum pouches to recycle chewing gum so birds don’t eat it when it has been dropped.

    I also think theres a certain tranquility you get from seeing something green (I am genuinely thinking of painting my bedroom green, or at least sticking a picture of a forest on the wall). Its something thats been bred into us, something that reassures us. Seeing green tells our system that (on an evolutionary basis) resources are ripe and we have no need to worry. When we see grey, our primeval selves see winter, see food shortages and hard times. I believe, a little more greenery will improve our psychological wellbeing.

    So to draw this to an end, this is something I feel is very important. PLANT MORE TREES! Every road should have a tree on it, starting in North Acton (the least green place I have seen so far).

    And every roof should be a garden.

    And Wormwood Scrubs needs sorting out, little bit of tidying up would do the trick.

    Regents Park is Amazing!

    Anyway, this is a project that is much needed and I give my full support!

  • Making London a National Park City would help to protect our fantastic green spaces and our amazing biodiversity, and should encourage all Londoners to think a bit differently about the way we interact with the urban nature around us.
