Conference Explores Creating Restorative Localities
On 15 July, the Restorative Justice Consortium hosted a one-day conference called Becoming a Restorative County/ Local Authority exploring how a locality can become fully restorative. Conference plenary sessions and workshops presented the experiences of various groups developing holistic approaches to implementing restorative practices.
Building restorative cultures
by Dan Van Ness
Yesterday I wrote about the media treatment of a paper delivered by Dr. Hillary Cremin warning that restorative justice programmes alone are not enough to address bullying if there is not also a culture change at the school.
One newspaper reported that this meant that "trendy" restorative justice doesn't work to stop bullying. My entry yesterday considered the difficulty of working with media to present a nuanced argument when they are looking for soundbites to sell papers.
Today I want to consider another issue, one that Dr. Cremin raised in our correspondence:
New Video: An Introduction to Restorative Practices at Endeavour High School.

This 13-minute video shows how Endeavour High School, once a failing school in Hull, England, the third most impoverished ward in the United Kingdom, has undergone enormous changes since implementing restorative practices.
