Drawing on the knowledge of expert keynote speakers: Professor Jason Leitch, Dr Aubrey Fox, Karyn McCluskey and James Docherty ‘How small steps fuel bold change’ will inspire you to think about how to implement change.
We pose the question: do we need big, bold and radical change? Or, incremental change across time. What works? And, why failing spectacularly isn’t always a bad thing. It is a serious and honest debate about the need for change – with practical takeaways on how you can approach problem-solving in your own work, or personal life.
Over the course of the morning, our speakers will share examples of their work in justice, prevention and public health – from Scotland and around the world – and show how ideas, whether bold or gradual, can gain traction.
At a time where Scotland has one of the highest imprisonment rates in Western Europe, 28.8% of Scotland’s prison population are on remand* and more than £442 million is spent every year on Scottish prisons, this debate couldn’t be more timely.
So, tell us – what does success look like to you? What do you want to see accomplished in Scotland?
For us, here at Community Justice Scotland, that’s a justice system that puts community at its heart. Supporting people to stay in, reconnect and contribute to their communities and putting #CommunityFirst, every time.
