A Restart Party in London (

Italian researcher Ugo Vallauri wants to put an end to the throwaway, consumerist model of electronics and the growing mountain of e-waste that it’s leaving behind. That's why he came up with The Restart Project, a people-powered social enterprise that aims to fix our relationship with electronics. They run regular Restart Parties in London where people teach each other how to repair their broken and slow devices – from tablets to toasters, from iPhones to headphones. They work with schools and organisations to help them value and use their electronics for longer. And they use the collected data to help demand better, more sustainable electronics for all. The Restart Project is based in London, UK, but their message, and their parties, are spreading across the world. The motto is: don’t despair, just repair!
