The city launched a communication campaign to reach as many citizens as possible and convince them to bring in broken devices or clothing before or during International Repair Day. During the event, 19 volunteers repaired for 8 hours and a total amount of 156 items were collected. The repair marathon was a great event to bring different repair actors together, create awareness about repair in the city and off course .. repair a lot of devices or clothing in one day.
