Introducing the Sharepair project

The Restart Project is a partner of “Sharepair”, a project funded by Interreg NW Europe to build a digital infrastructure for citizens in the repair economy

Repairing for the Earth, repairing everywhere

The environmental cost of our electronics consumption is a global problem, requiring a global response. For Earth Day, we shout about the global issue of climate change and electronic waste while we recognise the power of repair to respond to these challenges.

Plenary session at Fixfest UK

Inspired and energised from Fixfest UK

On Saturday in Manchester, 59 community repair activists from all over the UK got together to mingle, share, help each other out and think collectively about growing our movement and bringing down the barriers to repair and longer-lasting products.

Announcing our new radio season

After summer holidays in August, we are back on Restart Radio. We now have a new slot with Resonance 104.4FM at 5pm on the second Tuesday of each month. We will also keep producing a monthly podcast with Dave Pickering, which will be published on our website.

Backing to scale our activities closer to home

We’re happy to announce that we’ve been granted two years funding from Nesta and the UK’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to actively promote Restart Parties and spread community repair across England.
