GREATER LONDON NATIONAL PARK CITY:
A talk by Daniel Raven-Ellison Wednesday 24th June 2015,
The Honor Oak Pub (upstairs) 7pm to 9pm
A new project is in the pipeline to create a Greater London National Park City. Officially a notional national park*, the originators of this project would like to make their vision a reality. Daniel Raven-Ellison, a founder of this project, will talk about the vision, followed by Q & A.
The website http://www.greaterlondonnationalpark.org.uk/ states:
|Uniquely combining a biodiverse landscape with nature reserves, parks and gardens, the Greater London National Park* covers an area of over 1,500 km2 and is home to more than 8 million people.
Recognised as one of the world’s most important urban habitats, green, blue and open spaces occupy over 60% of London. Over 1,300 Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation cover 19% of the National Park*.
With over 300 languages spoken, 170 museums, four UNESCO World Heritage Sites and one of Britain’s National Trails, the Greater London National Park* is open for you to explore.
This event has been organised on behalf of the Lewisham Parks Forum
