This July London is becoming the world’s first National Park City. To make it a lasting success the foundation needs your help to make it come alive so that all Londoners know about it and can play their part.
The idea of London being the world’s first ever National Park City started as a grassroots effort. Its greatest strength is that it has kept true to being a London-wide grassroots endeavour.
None of this would have happened without the support of thousands of people who helped persuade the Mayor of London, most of the London Assembly and over 1,000 locally elected councillors to back the idea.
Such political backing is great to have, but the foundation cannot rely either on big budgets or traditional media to get its message out.
It now needs your help to publish National Park City Maker, a newspaper-sized guide to making London life greener, healthier, wilder and better in so many ways.
According to a YouGov poll, 7 in 10 Londoners think the National Park City will improve life in London. Despite this support, only 1 in 10 Londoners knew that London is becoming a National Park City. The foundation wants to change that by the time it launches in July.
This crowdfunding campaign will make a significant contribution towards hitting that target but it needs £40,000 to be pledged by March 8.
