Yesterday we hit some big milestones of waste and CO2 prevented, logged by Restart Party hosts across the world: five tons of electronics diverted from waste, and 100,000 kg CO2 prevented through repair.
In our last session, we invited a guest speaker to talk about their tech job – and what they felt are some of the “ninja skills” of the future, given the trends of automation and climate change.
Today, Ugo and Dave are joined by Peter Mui from Fixit Clinic, a U.S. based “troubleshooting and discovery workshop” that has much in common with Restart Parties and Repair Cafes.
This month we are turning 5. That’s how long an average computer is used before it’s replaced. For us, the five year mark is just the beginning. But we cannot carry on without you. You can donate or show your support in other ways.
We are seeing hints that electronics repair is spreading and proliferating in both primary and secondary school, in Europe and North America.
