A piece of the puzzle

The Cable's solutions series

There’s an old saying in journalism that “if it bleeds, it leads”, meaning that news organisations put the grimmest stories front and centre. No doubt, it’s necessary to highlight the bad and the ugly around us. But journalism too often focuses on just the problem, not the solution. That’s why we’re launching this solutions series.

Expect to find vibrant debates and big ideas, inspiring tales of innovators and people champions, and realistic solutions to some of the most pressing issues on our streets. Together with members, community activists, residents and local experts we explore the pieces of the puzzle that can help solve some of the biggest issues facing our communities.
