We’re working on testing some methods for tracking the impacts of Restart Parties beyond the immediate waste prevented. Building on research last year, our goal is to design light-weight methods of gauging experience at events, and changes in attitudes and actions after events. (These will eventually be incorporated into our reporting software, available to all groups.)
But we need the help of a couple of pioneering groups. Have you been asked by local authorities or funders for more data or insights into the social impacts of repair events? Would learning more about participant experience motivate you and your group?
Join us in testing a couple of methods this autumn at repair events. This will probably require recruiting an extra volunteer to help you test these out. We’re looking for 3-4 groups, some in London and some outside of London, some “new” and some well-established.
We’ll be discussing this project together with Resource Futures, the organisation that is helping us in this effort. Please message me or respond below if you’d like to be involved!
