Webinar recording | Restorative practice in the environmental setting

with Fiona Buchan-Ng and Vanessa Sugrue

pre-recorded | Online
A great story of RP being used in the environmental context, so exciting to hear it’s power as an education tool

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.

The link to the recording of this webinar will remain active for at least 3 months from the date of purchase. We continue to consult with the given presenter as to whether extended availability is possible. We are therefore not able to guarantee access beyond 3 months.
