Please join Bionic City in declaring your support for Greater London National City Park!
What's the big idea? In the campaign's own words:
"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... More than 80% of the UK’s population live in towns and cities. These urban areas now cover 7% of the UK and 10% of England. Think of urban landscapes and what comes to mind are industrial sites, houses, roads and rail lines. But in reality it is a richly woven tapestry of greens and blues made up of gardens, rivers, parks, woodland, nature reserves, canals, meadows, woodland, allotments, streams and lakes."
Today sees the initiative launch a crowdfunding campaign with The New Civic on Indiegogo. Funds raised will create a "huge, beautiful fold-out map of London's amazing outdoors, produced affordably for everyone." Your help would be much appreciated in making the joint, non-profit campaign a success!
