Office workers in the capital are being invited to leave swap their desks for a place in an Outdoor Office which will be hosted in St James’s Park for two days July.
The Outdoor Office is being organised by Visit London and forms part of their “Great Outdoors” campaign which aims to increase use and enjoyment of the capital’s green spaces which include 600 garden squares, 148 parks and gardens and 16 city farms.
James Bidwell, Visit London’s Chief Executive, says: “There are literally 100s of green spaces in the capital, but Londoners often spend too long in the office to get out and enjoy them. The Outdoor Office enables Londoners to get back to nature during the working day. I am looking forward to having a few meetings in the Outdoor Office myself – St James’s is one of my favourite London parks.”
Weather permitting the Outdoor Office will be situated in a beautiful spot in St James’s Park, overlooking the lake just off Birdcage Walk and will come complete with Wi-Fi, a reception area, boardroom, creative room, work desk area and even a water cooler! Organisers are inviting Londoners to book a space for a meeting, a brainstorm or to hot desk over the two days.
Mayor of London Boris Johnson said he wanted to encourage “all Londoners to make the most of our capital’s opportunities for outdoor living this summer.”
