Green for Victory: Parks and open doors

Autumn 2020

A quick glance at the green map of our capital reveals that most of its parks and gardens are clustered in distinct areas, leaving great gaps in the urban forest and entire neighbourhoods devoid of green. Unfortunately, this more often than not correlates with wealth and ethnicity - with less green space in lower income areas, and areas with higher BAME populations. London’s nature is apparently not for everyone.

Through data, walking and talking with the people of Barking Park, we explore who London's park doors are and aren't open to, and challenge how we can empower our parks to become spaces of true equality.
