Read now: the ninth Exploare is here!

Whether it’s making use of psychological insight to improve the human experience of the built environment, or democratising traditionally exclusive areas of science and research, our new issue is about moving away from silo mentality to embrace the possibilities and diverse perspectives that joined-up, holistic thinking can bring.

Within these pages, BBC journalist and Mastermind presenter Clive Myrie – whose work has provided him with myriad windows on society over the past 35 years – talks people, place and their interconnected issues. Looking at society’s loneliness crisis, we also consider how we can harness design to foster social connection, promote intergenerational togetherness and avoid community severance. Meanwhile, aspiring astronaut Dr Jackie Bell shares thoughts on her journey to become the first Scouser in space, and recruiting a spectrum of explorers for voyages through the realms of science.

Elsewhere, a 1920s radio transmitter turned educational award-winner preserves the past while nurturing the next generation; Manchester College inspires high-performance futures; and we revisit Commonwealth Games star the Alexander Stadium, a masterclass in going for gold with world-class sporting venues.
