On the threshold to 2020, we welcomed the 2,000th Repair Café into our network. Warm congratulations to the team of Repair Café Utrecht-Rivierenwijk in the Netherlands!
The meetings of this new Repair Café take place on the premises of a playground, located in a park which is often visited by adults. “Visitors came up with the idea of starting a Repair Café in the interior space which is part of the playground”, says playground manager and Repair Café organizer Jan-Willem Gunnink.
Everyone is welcome
According to Gunnink, the interior space is a great repair location. “And children who come to play here, will learn that you don’t have to throw broken items away, but that you can fix them”, he says. However, the new Repair Café is not only aimed at children. Gunnink: “Everyone is welcome!”
Early January the milestone of 2,000 Repair Cafés was reached
