This month, we will begin a ten-session enrichment programme with students at the Archer Academy, a school in North London. We will start with a dive into why we need to change our relationship with electronic and get hands-on.
Today, we talk to Rob Kerr from Lovefone – an independent mobile repair store – about the relationship between manufacturers and repairers.
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.
