From Birmingham to Belfast and from environmentalism to social cohesion, stories that we'll share in the coming days as part of our United Kingdom of Solutions focus will zoom in on the people unearthing solutions to the challenges facing the UK
Glued to the mainstream media, you would be forgiven for thinking that the UK has become a pretty despondent place. From Brexit chaos to an under-pressure health system, knife and gun crime, social division and inequality, there is certainly plenty to improve upon.
But this isn’t the whole story. There are the gutsy grassroots leaders shaking up local democracy in the south-west, the passionate people challenging stereotypes in the north and the nature-lovers who think London can become a world-leading green city.
In the Midlands, there are those who are motivated to unite cultures and religions and, in Northern Ireland, entrepreneurs who believe that technology can shape society for the better.
Wales is carving out a reputation for socially-progressive policies, while Scotland is boldly making inroads into tackling inequality.
