What's On

London National Park City Events around London.



To celebrate the first anniversary of London becoming the World’s first National Park City, we held a special online event to showcase 100 people who are doing things to make our National Park City greener, healthier or wilder. You can now watch many of the speakers over on our YouTube channel. more >


London is full of millions of people who have ideas and projects to make life better in our city. What if we shared those ideas more and inspired other people to do them too? 

We organise regular Gatherings at which people making London greener, healthier and wilder share their work, their goals and vision.

For London Design Festival 2020, There Project take you on an audio journey along Regent's Canal to explore how design can help us be more ecocentric. Guided by conservationist, wildlife writer and #NationalParkCity Ranger Kabir Kaul, this podcast will take you from Islington Tunnel to Kingsland Basin Nature Reserve.  Go on the journey >

2. Take part in the first National Park City Festival.Taking place between 20-28th July, and hosted by the Mayor of London this will be London’s largest free celebration of the outdoors, celebrating everything green and wild about the city. Themes include stage, rooftops, splash, forest and wildlife, all to celebrate London’s new status as the world’s first National Park City. nationalparkcity.london.gov.uk

3. Hold a mini opening ceremony. Rather than just having one big opening ceremony, we’re inviting anyone to hold mini opening ceremony to celebrate the launch anytime from May onwards. makelifebetter.nationalparkcity.london

4. Be a National Park City Maker. Anyone who is helping to make London greener, healthier and wilder can consider themselves a National Park City Maker if they want to. Feel free to add this to your online presence if you want to. www.nationalparkcity.london/makers

5. Want to Make Life Better? Us too. On our website we are sharing quests that include lots of simple things you can do to make life better for yourself, for others and for wildlife. makelifebetter.nationalparkcity.london  

6. Help to get the word out and use the #NationalParkCity hashtag. 
We need your help to spread the word about London becoming a National Park City. Bring it up in conversation, share it on newsletters and talk about it on social media. Share news, stories, events or photos that relate to London great outdoors or making the city greener, healthier and wilder using the #NationalParkCity hashtag!

7. #GiveAPlant. We’ve just launched a campaign to encourage each other to #GiveAPlant or three. You could grow nasturtium from seed and then #GiveAPlant to a friend, everyone on your street or everybody at school. Or you could give ivy to lots of neighbours and try to become an ivy street. Whatever you do, please share your efforts using the hashtags #GiveAPlant and #NationalParkCity.
8. Use the National Park City* identity. We’re really keen to see people and organisations using the London National Park City wordmark and especially the aster* that we use as our symbol. The aster is really easy to draw, stencil and find on your keyboard*. The identity lets you associate your organisation as being within the London National Park City. Find out more at www.nationalparkcity.london/identity

9. Ask your business, organisation or group to join the Network.  If you are a school then check out the brand new London National Park City Schools Network that any school in London may join.

10. Set up a National Park City Group. Would you be interested in setting up an informal National Park City Group? This could be on your street, as part of an established group or within an organisation. Inspired by the National Park City you’d decide things you wanted to do together… and then do them. You might want to explore London in new ways, act to make the city greener or help us with campaigns.  www.nationalparkcity.london/groups
