Description

The Jubilee Centre is a pioneering interdisciplinary research centre focussing on character, virtues and values in the interest of human flourishing. 

This session offers the chance to hear about the centre’s three flagship research projects. Dr David Walker and Michael Roberts will discuss how character and virtue is being developed in schools across Britain, and what more can be done? Dr Liz Gulliford and Blaire Morgan will examine the conception, value and promotion of gratitude in society.

Dr Luca Baldini Confalonieri and Demelza Jones will explore the role of virtues and values in training and practice in three professions; medicine, teaching and law. These three short talks will be followed by refreshments, and an opportunity to discuss the projects with the researchers.
