This year, everything feels very near-future. In some sense, the books we have listed here represent the need to understand now in terms of possible, increasingly tangible futures.
In our Restart Party Kit, we offer some small tips and suggestions that might help other Restart Party hosts get started quicker. At the end of the day, throwing a Restart Party is not rocket science. Restart Party hosts are social people who make great things possible, one repair at a time.
We have run Restart Parties in universities before, but this project looks at helping to create a local team of Restarters. We are supported by the City University’s Green Dragons.
Thought experiment: Hollywood-apocalyptic male-fantasy scenarios aside, after a global catastrophe, how could a surviving 10% of us “restart” the world?
We visited the London Bike Kitchen – a very special DIY Bike Repair Workshop in east London. We had felt a certain kinship with this project for a long time. What is for “sale” is empowerment, community and resilience.
