Repair-Café

Today’s trash is tomorrow’s treasure!

Countless objects are thrown away in the western Industry nations. Among them are a lot of objects, that, after simple repairs, will function again in no time. Against this trend Repair-Initiatives [1] and Repair-Cafés [2] are being founded all over the country.
In our solidarity center (Willy-Brandt-Allee 11) a Repair-Café emerged inspired by the model of said Repair-Initiatives and Repair-Cafés. For it we’re still looking for active supporters!
With the initiative of our Repair-Café we want to

  • bring those who are interested in contact with professionals and tinkerers to bring objects back to their old glory together.
  • sharpen the technical understanding in the process
  • bring back the high regards towards the product and the work put into making it and push back the need for quick, short-term consume – the “simple rebuying”.
  • above all include the refugees in and around Lübeck in our work

Are you interested in our project? No matter if Repair-Expert or guest: You are more than welcome here! Just send us a mail under reparatur@solizentrum.de
Our next planning meeting is on Friday, the 4th of March 2016 or alternatively on Friday the 1st of April 2016 (April 15th) in our Solidarity Center on the Wallhalbinsel.
