Tim Webb from London National Park City celebrates the first year of progress with an article for CJS. The pandemic scuppered first anniversary celebration plans and Rangers regrouped and emerged with a new plan utilising technology. Physical gatherings gave way to virtual ones. In a way, it has been a levelling experience. Many people can’t attend meetings or find them intimidating. Joining via the safety of an internet connection allowed more people and more diverse people to add their voices and ideas. Making better use of our green spaces means more people outdoors more of the time. Improving the number and quality of these green spaces is good for nature and allows us to make best use of the services nature provides, such as pollution and climate control, water management, food production, waste management and energy creation. Being outdoors also means we are more active and improve our own physical and mental wellbeing.
