International Repair Day 2020


17 October 2020

The aim of the annual International Repair Day is to emphasize that repair is good for the environment, for our climate and for a resilient society.

It is of course a perfect day to also come forward with the ShaRepair project.

In Belgium, project partners Maakbaar Leuven, Stad Leuven and Repair & Share are joining forces to organize several coronaproof events in Leuven, together with other local organizations.

  • With circular city walks, a Repair Café (make an appointment), workshops for children, as well as a colourful and musical action for the Right to Repair, they make citizens aware of the importance of repairing.
  • Repair Café repairers can follow workshops on the possibilities of 3D printing and receive tips and tricks to repair electrical appliances faster and easier.
  • During interactive sessions, citizens and community repairers will learn more about the plans for a repair hub in Leuven, digital tools for repairers and the possibilities of the online platform RepairConnects, one of the pilots of the ShaRepair project.
