The Centre's current projects seek to explore aspects of character and virtues, with a particular focus on the virtues of gratitude and service, in the professions, education, voluntary sector, families, media, young people and in parents. These projects build on the findings and recommendations drawn from the Centre's previous work in Gratitude Britain and will strive to answer the following big questions:
- To what extent has the ideal of serving the common or public good been eroded in contemporary British society and in professional life?
- How might the ideals of professional and other service be enhanced and strengthened?
- What personal and public virtues might be promoted to underpin such professional and public service?
