Are you looking for new positive and practical activities for your community group? Would you like to do your bit to reduce electronic waste but you’re not sure what to start with?
Join our special training event in East London on Saturday 23 July to help new groups get started running Restart Parties.
Restart Parties are volunteer-run pop-up community repair events, happening in community centres, libraries and other shared spaces. At the events volunteers with fixing skills help participants mend their misbehaving electricals and electronics, from toasters to phones. You don’t need to have technical knowledge to organise and host an event and there is lots of practical support on offer.
The training will provide interested community groups with all they need to start running events – including how to find volunteers with the right skills, the few essential tools you need, safety guidelines and how to best promote the event.
You will meet other people who are doing the same thing in London and join a global family of groups who all want to tackle overconsumption and help people get more use out of their gadgets.
The training is free and includes lunch. It is from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 23 July in Redbridge Central Library, Clements Road, Ilford, IG1 1EA. Booking is essential. To book your place or get further information e-mail Kathryn Packer: [email protected]
The training is part of a series of activities The Restart Project is running in East London in 2016 for the East London Waste Authority.
