Leading & Sustaining Change

Restorative practices and restorative justice have made great strides in the last 20 years. It is now time to turn our attention to facilitating the necessary changes in society that we want to see. Join scholars and practitioners from Canada and around the world to share knowledge and explore new and exciting ways to sustain restorative cultures in a variety of settings.

The program will include an opening and closing plenary session and a variety of 50-minute and 100-minute breakout sessions throughout the three days of the conference. The featured panels will help us dig deeper in to the theme of “Leading and Sustaining Change” when applied to schools, criminal and youth justice, Indigenous communities and workplaces. More than 80 inspiring breakout sessions will provide attendees with in-depth sharing of experience, learning and an exchange of ideas. Learn more »
