Aoife, 23

I always take walks around the marshes. In summer, I basically live there. It's so green, compared to other parts of London. Most of the city is just blocks, blocks, blocks, just constant blocks. Whereas in East London you have the canal, you have the marshes, you have all of those spaces.

A lot of people don’t have gardens here. So having that green space is really important. If we keep building on it there won’t be any greenery left in London. That’s quite suffocating I think.
