Let's fix our relationship with electronics

The Restart Project helps people learn how to repair their broken electronics, and rethink how they consume them in the first place.

Restart Parties

You’re invited to a Restart Party!

Fixometer

Our web app allows members of the repair community to log their fixes and to learn about the social and environmental impact of their work.

Our insights

We collect data on repair from our community events and we use the data to provide insights into the devices we see.

Education

We’re sparking repair activity in schools around the world.

Restart at School

Our hands-on programme helps secondary schools build repair into their curriculum, to create a new generation of fixers.

Read about our first programme at Archer Academy, in London.
