Why Repair Day?

We want to make repair as visible as possible. This day highlights the value of repair and promotes global community efforts to fix the stuff we own.

During the first two editions of Repair Day, we witnessed great interest and sharing through social media, where people posted their repair events and stories, and we heard from fixers and community repair events across the world, from the UK to Spain, Iran, Argentina or the US. In 2018, the focus was on #RighttoRepair, with increased interest from the global press and from independent repairers.

International Repair Day also presents an opportunity to further promote community repair events globally: motivating active groups, encouraging new ones to emerge, and inspiring citizens to share their skills as volunteers.

Beyond repairing in the community, this day can help independent repair shops promote their work, and also inspire companies to show support for repair, sharing information, tools or spare parts.
