Nelson Tasman Climate Forum

The Nelson Tasman Climate Forum, founded in April 2020, is a large group of committed individuals in the top of South Island who are working together to tackle all aspects of climate change.  They are "doing" first rather than waiting for national or local legislation to make things happen.  The forum includes groups on food and water resilience, energy, waste and resources, transport etc.  The Forum's Repair Cafe has been operating since November 2020, and involves a wide range of individuals and now also local groups such as the MeNZshed,  plus help from the Nelson Council's Older Person's Strategy group volunteers etc.

Restart Party Do’s and Don’ts

DO

  • Check if your device is still within warranty, you may be eligible for a free repair, replacement or a refund. (Which? helps in the UK).
  • Take responsibility for your device and your data. Our volunteers are here to help you learn to fix your gadget, not to provide a free repair service. Get involved!
  • Backup your data. We can’t be responsible for your cat pics, so please back up your device before you come. (Of course you already do this once a month, right?)
  • Charge up your device and bring all leads.
  • Get in touch with organisers if you have any questions about whether a fix is possible.

DON’T

  • Assume repairs will be successful. We help fix over half of devices at our events. Even if your repair is unsuccessful, you will learn about your device and why it failed.
  • Expect us to have spare parts. But we can help you source them. Often people visit twice: first we’ll help diagnose the fault, then you source the spare part, and on your return we’ll help you do a replacement.
  • Attempt a mobile screen repair just to save money. DIY mobile screen repair is a learning opportunity first and foremost. Please see our advice page first.
  • Bring a microwave.
