Exchange of Repair Cafés 0 Reply

We seem to have forgotten that we can repair things. Our current model of consumption invite us to buy new things even before thinking we can repair them so that things are also produced following short-life expectation. However, in 2009 a new concept was developed by Martine Postma and the first Repair Café was held at Fine Wood Theater, Amsterdam-West. Following these two steps, the Repair Café Foundation was set up on 2 March 2010 in order to support local groups in setting up their own Repair Cafés. The network of Repair Cafés, continuously and strongly growing includes over 1100 Repair Cafés operating around the world.

With the aim of promoting mutual learning by bringing together different Repair Cafes from the world as well as stimulating the dissemination of this concept in order to promote the opening of new Repair Cafés, Dialogue Café Network is organising an Exchange session of Repair Cafes in the framework of the Cycle on Social Entrepreneurship so that, social entrepreneurs motivated with the idea of promoting sustainable societies and community development will have access to experiences and mutual learning to open new Repair Cafés.

The session will be held on 4 May from 15h to 17h London time.
