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.”

  • What starts in London can spread around the country. Encouraging biodiversity in our urban areas is good for people’s health. Obviously as long as “National Park” doesn’t mean filling the city full of Sheep and areas for Grouse shooting like the rest of the NP’s in the country.

  • I believe that the people of London, it’s residents, people who work here and especially our children, should have access to, be amongst and learn about the wildlife all around us, in our parks, rivers, gardens and so on as often as possible. There are so many benefits to living closely with nature, including improving our mental wellbeing. If we respect nature, understand the challenges our city wildlife faces and are aware of the effects of our lifestyles on our wildlife, London would be a better place for every living thing, including us!

  • I want to bring more of the natural world into London, closer to people’s, especially children’s day-to-day lives.
  • London has such a diverse landscape for an urban area and by turning into National Park City would put us at the forefront of the world, that otherwise struggles with tackling environmental issues straight on.
