Anyone can be a National Park City Maker: Helping improve life in London by getting outdoors and making the city greener, healthier and wilder.

A National Park City Maker is someone:

Who cares - What if we all cared a little more for where we live, work and play?  We care for the things we love and love the things we care for.

Who is informed - “Why” is the question Makers ask themselves.  Knowledge is not power, it is only potential. Understanding issues within the bigger picture and identifying the best way forward is what makes a Maker.

Who is Connected -  Individual actions DO matter, but collectively, the difference we make and the benefits gained are multiplied by Maker groups.

Who is inspired and inspiring - Look around you and take note of what places feel like, the wildlife, your community, other communities, workplaces, activities and events. Seek inspiration for ideas or actions you could copy and share.

Who does stuff - If not me, then who? Makers don’t wait to be asked, they do, but do in an informed, safe and community spirited way with consent and support.

As a National Park City Maker you may want to:

  • Simply show your support for the National Park City while doing your thing
  • Get involved on your own, doing things as and when you can
  • Be notified about volunteering opportunities with different organisations
  • Set up or join a National Park City Makers group
  • Lead a project, event or campaign
  • Volunteer directly for us, to help with our events and campaigns

National Park City Groups

By working together we can get so much more done and faster too!

National Park City Makers can join up into informal National Park City Groups.

It may just be your family wanting to brighten your home with more plants on the windowsill, neighbours wishing to work together to make their street more lush and green, colleagues at work keen to have more outdoor and walking meetings, a set of sports clubs based around a playing field, a group of schools wanting to do more outdoor learning, two local Friends of Parks groups who want to sign post a walking  route between the two parks.

Read more about groups and how you may set one up over on our Groups page.

Would you like to be a National Park City Champion?

Everyone can be a National Park City Maker, but if you wanted to get even more involved then why not become a Champion?

We want to reach as many people around London to let them know that London is becoming a National Park City, what that means, and what they can do to be involved.

We are challenging you to become a National Park City Champion. Champions will reach out to friends, groups, organisations and companies. To present to them National Park City and to explore the ideas with them, and then to take part and make their own difference.

Commit to give a small number of presentations per year, and you can join one of our FREE Champion Workshops and learn how to use story telling to explain the vision of London as a National Park City. To read more and book see our list of Workshops during the next few months.
