Welcome to the Restarters Community!
We’re a global community of people who are passionate about repairing electronics. Together we run repair events around the world where volunteers help people give their devices a new lease of life. In the process, we spread repair skills and reduce the amount of e-waste and CO2 we produce.
Everyone is welcome! Whether you’re interested in repair, community events or any of the other topics we talk about, just jump right in!
