From October 9-13th, 2016, future trainers for the Restorative Circle method gathered in Lecce, Italy, to be trained by Kay Pranis, a leading expert who facilitates circles in some difficult and sensitive contexts in the US and around the world. Participants gathered from the participating countries of Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Italy and Greece to go through their own circle process as well as plan for the upcoming 2017 project. The week launched the Restorative Circles project and brought up all the aspects of decision making that needed to be made internationally and nationally in country groups. The group planned, discussed, worked through potential challenges, and got inspired for the upcoming year of circles. Stay tuned to hear more!
