Using Restorative Justice in Environmental Disasters

We’re an interdisciplinary consortium of peacemakers, healers, restorative justice practitioners, systems changers, lawyers, and concerned members of the community who have come together in response to destruction of the natural environment caused by humans.

We bring many talents, gifts, and values to the world, gained through experience in developing approaches to recovering from harm. We believe that the solution to complex interconnected crises cannot be found through adversarial processes that attribute blame and look only to financial recompense.

Instead we need to look to methodologies that get to the root cause of problems and enable the multiple stakeholders to co-create solutions through approaches that restore relationships – human and non-human – and bring lasting change.

We are available to explore the possibility of working together in a different way to move towards bringing the parties together to find a collective way forward. Our methodologies include:

  • Restorative Justice (e.g. restorative circles, facilitated dialogues between stakeholders, etc.)
  • Mediation
  • Systemic Constellations
  • Dragon Dreaming (the path from the individual to a collective vision)
  • Rights of Nature – proposal for a new legislative structure based on a holistic framework – at national, regional or municipal level.
  • If you are a stakeholder in an environmental disaster: the responsible party, a person injured, a person concerned about a particular environmental harm, please contact Kim to be put in touch with the team.
