This Spring, London will become the world’s first National Park City. Its launch will be celebrated by a series of crowd-funded events across the capital to encourage turning even more of London green, through green roofs living walls and rain gardens that absorb water run-off. The ultimate aim is for at least half the city to be declared a suitable habitat for wildlife.
London National Park City is a charity run by the Greater London Authority with blue-chip sponsors such as Amp and the Canary Wharf Group. London has for many years been considered among the world’s greatest cities thanks to its 3,000 parks and 300 urban farms.
