Let’s make London the world’s first National Park City. A city where people and nature are better connected. A city that is rich with wildlife and every child benefits from exploring, playing and learning outdoors. A city where we all enjoy high-quality green spaces, the air is clean to breathe, it’s a pleasure to swim in its rivers and green homes are affordable. Together we can make London a greener, healthier and fairer place to live. Together we can make London a National Park City.

There is no precedent for creating a National Park City. London can become a National Park City in three steps:

1. Declare Greater London a National Park City

The Government is not being asked to designate London a National Park City. Londoners are invited to turn this vision into a reality. By working together to gain the support of 436 of London’s 654 electoral wards (two-thirds) and the Mayor of London, we will have the legitimate democratic support to officially declare the capital a National Park City .

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has given his backing and 210 wards across 30 boroughs have declared their support so far. To help to make London a National Park City: Declare your support. You can do this as an individual, group or organisation

2. Create an organisation

A Greater London National Park City Partnership of individuals, families, groups and organisations will work together to care for the National Park City. The Partnership will only formally come into existence after we have legitimately declared London a National Park City.

To help form the Greater London National Park City Partnership:

Read our draft Charter and respond to the consultation

3. Launch the Greater London National Park City

Once we have secured an official declaration and established an effective organisation, the Greater London National Park City will be officially launched.
