Repair: a force against entropy!
Celebrate International Repair Day with our Intergalactic Virtual Fixit Clinic out of Lund/Malmö Sweden. The IIIEE will introduce you to the critical raw materials in everyday household items and why repair is so important. Then we continue with a community repair event that is hosted by Fixit Clinics (US) and Repair Cafes Malmö and Lund, bringing the world’s greatest troubleshooting talent together to address whatever’s presented using teleconferencing software (Zoom.) You are welcome to take a look at what community repair is all about, get help repairing a broken item, or help others to repair theirs.
Here’s how it works: participants show their broken item to the global assembly of community repairers and get suggestions for things to try. After all items are presented, we assign items/participants and repairers to Zoom breakout rooms to implement the suggestions and, hopefully, fix the items.
Please visit our Facebook-event for more information about the event and a link to register.
This event is part of the Future Week running October 12-18th 2020. This year's theme is Forces in Motion. More information in English here. The full programme with all events is available on the Future Week webpage (in Swedish).
