Note on times: Event is 20:00 CET/ 19:00 UK/ 11:00 PDT
In this special event, we will have a short introduction to critical raw materials - what they are, what kinds of products and components you find them in, and why repair is essential. We use materials developed by the Restart Project (within the REFER project) - these materials can also be used as part of other repair cafe and educational events. After the introduction, we will have a repair cafe session during which participants give a short introduction to the item they have brought to repair and we then divide into breakout rooms to try to repair the items. In the main room we will continue a discussion about materials, education, and repair for anyone interested.
GOT SOMETHING BROKEN? In addition to “carry-in items” the virtual format means we can look at big things like washing machines, doors, furniture and farm equipment now. Help us out by letting us know what you are bringing by registering in advance http://bit.ly/fixitcheckin
