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 has an abundance of parks, but there is often a lack of connectivity between them. Furthermore, there is a need to engage the wider urban population in thinking and acting in an ecologically sustainable way – one way to do this is getting more people involved in actively aiding nature in the city. This initiative could provide an excellent platform to promote these aims.
  • In order to challenge climate change, social inequality and the health crises that threaten our society, I believe that the egalitarian principles of nature, open spaces and the challenge of experiential benefits to consumerist benefits are achievable via the promotion of a national park city which could foster these ideals for a brighter tomorrow.
