We found this inspiring story in the Evening Standard a short while ago. It’s about a guy called John Dower who had been appointed by the British Government in 1942 – at the height of the war – to prepare for a post–war Britain.
He was tasked with planning for a network of national parks so the people could enjoy going out and relaxing. Something they hadn’t been able to do for nearly 6 years
As he travelled the country he was often challenged by locals over what he was doing in their countryside.
In 1946 the National Parks were opened.
What will our legacy be when the pandemic is over?
