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.”

  • In a busy city where people so easily become isolated in their individual worlds, green spaces offer a place for declaring ourselves unbusy and ready to connect with nature, with animals and through our common human enjoyment, with other people.

  • I grew up in London and parks are such an important part of my childhood. The summer of ’76 I spent the whole school holiday in the park – opening to closing time. Parks makes cities great places to grow up.

  • Protecting the species diversity and wild areas of the city is an important aspect of wildlife protection within the UK as a whole for as long as destructive farming practices continue to dominate in rural areas. Contact with wild nature is increasingly important for our physical and especially mental health, as our lifestyles take us further away from its rhythms. Marilyn Collins
  • I love the vision of London as a National Park City. The patchwork of green spaces, large and small, make our city liveable both for people and all forms of biodiversity. Its right we protect and cherish them. I’m glad to give my support as Highbury East ward Councillor, as a London Assembly Member and as a Londoner.
