Last Saturday we went for a 16km walk through green areas organised by this guy (Daniel) who is campaigning for London to become a National Park. London would be the first city in the world to obtain this status. I was actually surprised by some people who quickly decided this was a negative thing, fortunately most people were intrigued by it. I know I was... "London’s invaluable mosaic of gardens, woods, parks and nature reserves covers 47% of the capital. It is these spaces that make London enjoyable, healthy, prosperous and more resilient to climate change, whilst providing homes to over 13,000 species of wildlife." And here are some reasons why in detail: http://www.greaterlondonnationalpark.org.uk/get-involved/five-brief-reasons/ I just felt very excited at the prospect of living in a National Park to be honest, the other questions seemed secondary to me, but of course, very important. So after reading up on it I decided to support it and see where it goes, and now I'm sharing it here. This is currently undergoing consultation stage, it's very early days, and ideas are welcome. Also this is the time to get various boroughs to add their support too, so writing to wards at this stage is very helpful as well as spreading the word. If you want to get involved or want to find out more, go here.
