This symposium is your chance to hear from leading academics and professionals working in the restorative practices (and restorative justice) who will share their experiences, knowledge and skills on how to build a better community and promoting social cohesion.
We have secured new lead speakers to present at the symposium. These lead speakers draw from their extensive experience working in implementing restorative practices (both nationally and internationally).
Restorative Practices to Resolve Conflict/Build Relationships: Katy Hutchison at TEDxWestVancouverED
Katy Hutchison became a Restorative Justice advocate following the murder of her first husband. After ten years of sharing her story internationally to over five hundred schools and community groups, she views the education system as the structure with the most potential to affect positive social change. Katy sits on the Boards of Restorative Practices International & Glenlyon Norfolk School and volunteers for Leave Out Violence (LOVE).
"A restorative city involves restoring damaged relationships and managing social and community challenges through restorative practices and approaches across all aspects of the city.
Members of the community are encouraged to work together to restore relationships damaged by conflicts and anti-social behaviours arising in the health, justice, education and community sectors.
This approach ultimately creates a more harmonious, safe and cohesive city.
