The event centred on character in the education system, young people and how the institutions we build encourage young citizen to display courage, compassion, honesty, integrity, fairness, perseverance, emotional intelligence, grit and self-discipline. This follows on from the recent ‘Character and resilience manifesto‘ published by the All Party Parliamentary group on Social Mobility.
