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 as 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 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 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 London to be declared a National Park City.”

  • I think London should lead the way in the world by embracing this fantastic proposal. The benefits for our city’s 8.6 million people would be immense.
  • I think it is an excellent aspiration, and along the way will encourage and facilitate some very positive discussions on the quality of life in a city
  • To ensure that London remains one of the greenest cities in Europe.
  • A million reasons. To lead the way for other cities to do the same. Our children need to know and interact with nature. We need to come back to nature.

  • I've declared my support for #London to be the world's first #NationalParkCity! You can too..
  • It’s a wonderful diverse and unique city…. It deserves the recognition!
  • Urban ecosystems are integral to the prosperity of a city and its inhabitants. Fostering a sense of environmental stewardship in cities will be key to ensuring that predicted global urbanisation is sustainable, and that urban biodiversity is safeguarded for future generations. It is my hope that, if London becomes the first urban national park in the world, it will contribute towards a framework for sustainable urban growth in developing countries.

  • London’s parks keep people healthy and happy. And makes it a unique city to visit
  • To soften the urban and add a touch of nature back, to lift the spirit and allow trees and parks to absorb the negative pollutions.
  • Since 1995 the Kungliga nationalstadsparken (the worlds 1st National City Park) has demonstrated that a city can teem with life and habitats vital for the survival of it. London deserves all our support for that simple goal.
  • I back London for NPC status because I believe it will be a healthier, more pleasant city in which to live, work, visit and raise a family. This change would stimulate investment and boost health for all residents; human or otherwise. Achieving this would make our Capital a world leader with a model others will want to copy.
  • London has fantastic green spaces and it is vital that these are preserved for future generations to enjoy! We celebrate our cities architecture but not our natural environment enough!
  • To breathe clean air, support Londoner’s mental health and encourage children to engage with green spaces so that they grow to love nature and fight to protect the vital resources that we depend on.
  • Because it is a vision which speaks to the heart of what makes London special and helps us rethink the way we plan for its future
