Are you about to start a campaign to make your city a National Park City? Have you been working to achieve the status for some time already?
Join this open meeting to be inspired and supported by people who are working to make their cities National Park Cities. We'll be sharing our hopes and progress, exploring practices, answering questions and giving advice.
These meetings take place on the first Thursday of each month, varying between 8am, 2pm and 10pm (London time) so that people can join from different time zones.
Everyone is welcome.
After an initial introduction we will break into two rooms. One room is for people who are new to the National Park City movement and have questions. The second room is for people who are further into their National Park City journeys.
Cities where people and nature are better connected. Cities rich with wildlife, where every child and young person benefits from exploring, playing and learning outdoors. Cities where we all enjoy high-quality green spaces, where the air is clean to breathe, where it’s a pleasure to swim in the rivers and where we can all live lives that are more harmonious with ourselves, our communities and our planet.
Together we can make our cities greener, healthier, wilder and fairer places to live.
Together we can make our cities National Park Cities. Why not? Let’s make our cities greener, healthier, wilder and fairer places to live.

Who’s involved? All kinds of people - cyclists, scientists, tree climbers, artists, teachers, students, unemployed, under-employed, doctors, swimmers, gardeners, walkers, kayakers, activists, wildlife lovers, politicians, children, parents and grandparents.
What’s our aim? To transform our cities into National Park Cities.
