Have you heard of repair cafes, local meeting places where people come together to fix stuff that would otherwise end up as #waste? According to repaircafe.org/ there are more than 1,500 repair cafes world-wide -- a growing, noncommercial global movement.

This article in The Guardian from last month gives a good introduction: "Can we fix it? The repair cafes waging war on throwaway culture"

@constructivejournalism oh, that's awesome! In Kotka, Finland they have a place for bike repair, teens use it a lot and older folks help them and manage the place. I took or bought a cart for my bike from them as far as I remember and they helped me to attach it. Super cool.
