Developing a repair culture within our educational institutions
The Repair Cafe movement is expanding all of the time – with thanks to the International Repair Cafe Foundation. Our universities, with their multi-disciplinary Schools and Faculties, provide fertile ground to grow a University Repair Cafe model that universities around the world can embrace and experiment with. WIth staff and students from IT, Engineering, Social Sciences. Art Fashion. Business, Agriculture etc, there is scope for a Repair culture to be built on every campus. I would love to learn from Repair Cafes that operate within the Univeristy sector, or from those students and staff who are keen to develop a Repair cafe to help spread the skills of repairing to many students.
