Help to make London a National Park City by declaring your support below. 

2,689 individuals just like you have declared their support over the last 4 years.

346 out of 654 ward teams - a majority - across 32 boroughs and the City of London have declared their support since 2015.

16 out of 25 London Assembly Members have declared their support.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has given his backing. His Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy, Shirley Rodrigues, has also given her support.

Nearly 200 organisations have backed the campaign during the last 4 years. Together these organisations have an estimated reach many tens of thousands of people.

This exciting achievement is completely down to the support and hard work of thousands of individuals, hundreds of organisations along with the enthusiasm of local councillors and regional politicians. Thank you to everyone who helped to make our campaign a success!

This all means that we have reached our required target of recruiting the support of the Mayor of London, the majority of the London Assembly and the majority of the capital’s elected ward teams. This is over 1,000 local and regional politicians.

Support is still needed!

The more people who support the London National Park City the more successful it will be. Help to recruit the support of all of London’s elected ward teams and London Assembly members.

Declare your personal support below. Then please help us recruit any of the following:

Ward Teams - Our campaign to recruit the support of London’s elected local councillors continues. Find out which ward teams are yet to declare and then help us by writing them a letter or email; meet with them; or ask for a motion to be put forward at the next ward forum meeting.

  • 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.

  • 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.
