An umbrella network for cities that are committed to decrease the still growing mountain of waste from electric and electronic devices by encouraging and promoting repair. Our goal is to create an ever growing network of Repair Cities in Europe.

During the event, repair volunteers from Repair Together were present to repair electrical or electronic devices. Cyréo proposed a second-hand shop open to all!

Why did we initiate the Repair Cities Network?

The network was set up to ensure that all developments within Sharepair will stay available for new and existing members.

We also want to:

  • create an umbrella network with interested cities;​
  • ensure that data about repair and data that facilitates repair will keep on being collected; ​
  • encourage policy learning and policy influencing; ​
  • facilitate the broader roll-out of the developed tools;​
  • extend the ‘lessons learned’ to other cities;​
  • raise awareness about repair​;
  • monitor the impact of repair;
