The National Park City Foundation, in conjunction with Salzburg Global Seminar and World Urban Parks have announced that five more cities have been successfully nominated to become National Park Cities on UN World Cities Day, aiming to join London and Adelaide as established National Park Cities.

They are proud to recognise the combined efforts of grassroots, civil society, and city government teams in each of Breda, Chattanooga, Glasgow, Rotterdam, and Southampton. Each campaign team has demonstrated that they have an active movement with at least 200 supporting partners, and have shown their commitment to work towards submitting their applications to be recognised as National Park Cities.

National Park Cities are grassroots movements for people making their cities greener, healthier and wilder. London became the world’s first National Park City in 2019 with Adelaide becoming the second in 2021.
