KINTSUGI webinar

Final event of the Erasmus+ project KINTSUGI

The European Forum for Restorative Justice (EFRJ) is one of the partners of the Erasmus+ project "KINTSUGI – Exchange of European Good Practices on Restorative Justice" coordinated by WELCOME (Italy) with partners from Belgium, Italy and Northern Ireland. Within KINTSUGI, three partners organised an international 90-hour training programme on restorative justice, divided over 3 weeks time in Belfast (UK), Rome (Italy) and Namur (Belgium). The training bring together 25 participants from these different countries, working in the field of restorative justice, probation, victim support and related areas.

The final event included:
>>> 4 pre-recorded videos, that will launched during the international Restorative Justice Week 2020: check our Vimeo channel and social media!
>>> a live Q&A session on the project with an open public (27/11 at 10-11am CET)*
>>> a closed event for the KINTSUGI participants only (27/11 at 11-12am CET): after an intimate closing circle, some photos of our two years project were shared, bring our memories back to our beautiful times together.

*During the live Q&A session participants were able to know more about the KINTSUGI project, in terms of training and good practices in restorative justice. You can find the recording of this meeting on the Facebook (it was live streamed on Facebook).
