Character formation, equality among men and women, and wellbeing, are just some of the educational challenges that experts from the United Kingdom, Spain, Poland, Germany, France, Portugal and the United States of America will try to find answers to in this conference. Among those taking part in the forum are Francis Campbell, Vice-Chancellor of St Mary's University, Twickenham, London and Elizabeth Schiltz, Professor of Law University of St.Thomas School of Law, Minneapolis and Daniel Moulin, Associate Fellow at University of Warwick, Coventry.

The 5th Conference will also offer a panel of experts composed of the executive directors of the main world-wide educational organizations of single-sex schools, such as the International Boys’ Schools Coalition, IBSC, the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools, NCGS, the Girls’ Schools Association, GSA and the European Association of Single-Sex Education, EASSE.
