London Parks launch at The City of London

Nicholas Lawrence

“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.” This is the opening of the www.nationalparkcity.london website. It’s beautiful isn’t it?  Geovation supported Daniel Raven-Ellison’s initiative to make Greater London the World’s first National Park City. Daniel, who has twice won Geovation challenges, launched the proposal at City Hall on 17th July with support from; GLA assembly members from the four main political parties, public, private and third sector organisations. The proposal newspaper is available at the Geovation Hub and looks amazing.  You can declare your support for London to become the world’s first National Park City by clicking here www.nationalparkcity.london/support. This Declaration celebrates the extraordinary diversity and interdependence of London’s people, communities, places, wildlife, habitats and ideas. It recognises that all residents and visitors have the potential to positively shape the Greater London National Park City, and that it exists to benefit and be enjoyed by all.
