Building sustainable future communities with young people.
Young people are making their way in times which feel unsettled, and are miles away from the experiences of their parents and grandparents. Facing issues with education, addiction, criminalisation and threats and violence from armed groups, to name just a few, how can young people’s ideas and wishes be better incorporated into the solutions to the problems they face? Actions which focus on building and repairing the relationships important to young people, called restorative practices, have become increasingly important to work with young people in overcoming some the challenges in their communities. This interactive workshop explores ideas around young people, restorative practices and sustainable development.
