Rosemary hosts Restart Parties in West London. As an environmentalist and Friends of the Earth coordinator, repair is close to her heart. She still uses a Nokia 3410, now on its second replacement battery.
We celebrated the first ever International Repair Day, which will fall on the third Saturday of October every year from now on. We’re just getting started, and next year will be much bigger.
Smartphone screen repairs can be really tricky. If any answer below is “no” to any of our three questions, please seek out a commercial mobile screen repair instead of coming to a Restart Party.
We’re small but we’re growing to help push for better products, based on our experience helping people fix electronics in communities. Please support us to bring higher-level change
Marie is a Restart Party Host in Leicester who started throwing parties a year ago. She is a PhD researcher at Loughborough University and green activist who knew next to nothing about technology before getting started, and made the link with Leicester Hackspace.
