Support our work

The Restart Project aims for a global shift towards a more sustainable and happier relationship with electronics.

We hosted our first Restart Party in a north London pub in June 2012. Since then, together with people from Montreal to Leicester to Milan, our growing network has helped more than 29,000 people extend the life of their gadgets, preventing over 68,000 kg of unnecessary waste and more than 800 tonnes of CO2e.

In 2022, we started testing two visions of permanent places for community-powered repair: our first ‘Fixing Factories’ in London. We kept up the pressure for the UK government to expand Right to Repair measures to mobiles, tablets and laptops. And we celebrated the international community repair movement with a new edition of Fixfest in Brussels.

Your donations will help us to:

  • Inspire and educate

    We aim to provide budding repairers with the skills they need to fix confidently, and the materials to embed repair in schools. We also stimulate wider discussion about better, sustainable products with our podcast.

  • Change the system

    We are collecting data on barriers to repair with repair activists from around the world. And we use this evidence to push for longer-lasting products and our Right to Repair in future policy

  • Promote local action and connection

    We provoke people to think, talk, and get hands-on experience. In addition to enabling more communities to share repair skills, we want to stimulate local repair economies by mapping and linking with businesses.
