This initiative is not just about the chance to revive and repair our possessions but also a unique opportunity to steer ourselves towards a more sustainable future. However, to make this a reality, we need you! We're looking for passionate volunteers who can contribute their skills to create the café and help people repair their things. Are you skilled in electronics repairs, have a background as an appliance repairer, excel in communication, or are you a master with needle and thread? Whatever your skills, there's a place for you at the Repair Café.

By joining the Repair Café team, you'll help organize the cafés and assist users in repairing their belongings. We plan to hold a café every month or every other month, and you can contribute to the extent that suits you.

FabLab RUC, the initiator of this café and together with the volunteers wishes to create an environment where we can restore old items, reduce waste, and promote a stronger community through the sharing of knowledge and skills. It is our goal to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, where everyone can learn, share, and contribute to a better world.

💚 Come as you are, and feel free to bring a friend! 💚

Let's contribute to a sustainable future, one repaired product at a time. We look forward to seeing you!
