Repair Café

Repair Cafés are volunteer-run meetings at which participants repair their non-functioning items together: small electrical devices, clothes, bicycles, toys, small items of furniture and lots more…

Anything that is damaged or non-functioning and has earned a chance of a second life is welcome.

Damaged or non-functioning items are too quickly thrown away. As soon as items show any kind of defect, we offload them and buy a new product.

Repair Cafés can change this situation! Valuable knowledge about repairs should be shared, resources saved and waste avoided.

A Repair Café is also a place to meet people and exchange ideas. Sitting with a cup of coffee and a slice of cake and chatting to other people from your neighbourhood is as important to us as the repair itself: It’s where tips are swapped and new projects are sparked and where we can enjoy each other’s company!

But you don’t know exactly how it works?

With our new free offer, we are supporting councils, organisations, associations or other groups to organise their own Repair Cafés.

  • We set up an information evening with you.
  • We give you a toolkit with plenty of useful tips and templates
  • We offer interactive and informative training courses for the group organising the respective Repair Café.

This will help establish “Repair Café Communities” throughout Luxemburg who can organise regular Repair Cafés independently.
