The London National Park City is a movement to make the capital greener, healthier and wilder. For one of the greenest cities in Europe this is a chance to connect Londoners and London’s many visitors to the outdoors, and for the city to lead the way on sustainability, biodiversity and the environment. We will be kicking off the week with the first ever London National Park City Fair. Organised by the National Park City Foundation, this is a free event with lots of interesting groups, speakers and ideas.
