Our positions

  • Black Lives Matter

    Our work as a social and health movement is about improving urban city life for everyone. 

    The evidence is that urban decay and poor city environments blight lives, and that disadvantaged people are affected the most, for example by breathing polluted air, poor access to quality green space, and often lacking the choices, means, support and resources to improve their lives.

    The National Park City Foundation stands against racism and supports Black Lives Matter.

    Our origins are in London, the world’s most racially diverse city, where we celebrate difference and diversity at our events, and where our network draws together people from very different backgrounds and experiences who make up the social fabric of the city, and work to make their city greener, healthier and wilder.

  • Development and planning

    We want planning and development in London to be an opportunity to advance London as a National Park City. We believe London’s variety of green and open spaces should be protected, respected and improved and should not be the subject to pressures from development. Individually and as a network London’s green and open spaces provide enormous benefits to Londoners, visitors, to neighbourhoods and to wildlife alike
