Webinar recording | Restorative practice in the environmental setting
with Fiona Buchan-Ng and Vanessa Sugrue
pre-recorded | Online
The first in a series of webinars offering case studies of Restorative practice in action…
When Canterbury Regional Council decided to implement a hybrid diversion/restorative justice process named Alternative Environmental Justice, to its toolkit of enforcement actions, the provider to deliver the conference was Restorative Justice Services Ōtautahi. This started a journey of discovery with many lessons for both organizations in how new processes evolve in existing structures. We will take you through our learnings.
