What is a Restorative City

"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. Restorative cities are also about social inclusion – no one should be left out when it comes to housing or the environment and restorative communities are interested in innovation that ensures everyone is included."
