Hi, I’m going to Warsaw for a week next monday - 6th of November.
In Repair Café Denmark we always try to strengthening our connections across Europe.
It seems like the repair café movement is not super strong in Poland, but I have set up a meeting with Polskie Stowarzyszenie Zero Waste, who runs a monthly repair café in Warsaw.
Are you aware of any other organisation or individuals, which might be interesting to connect with in the area. I’m willing to travel to another city for a great meeting, but otherwise I will be staying in the capital area.
That’s great, let us know how you get on.
I checked in the list of groups in Restarters - and we don’t have any groups added from Poland. Nor did we have any events listed for Repair Day in Poland.
There are 2 groups from Poland listed at https://www.repaircafe.org/en/visit/ - in Pila and Katowice. Neither very close to Warsaw! But perhaps if you contact them they might know of other organisations.
And… looking at the list of members of the Right to Repair Europe Campaign, the only large organisation currently a member from Poland is Polskie Stowarzyszenie Zero Waste
What a great idea Andreas!
In addition to what Neil said, Ashoka Poland started a repair cafe network with Veolia a few years ago. I believe they started 10 repair cafés with the aim of expanding this number across Poland. I’m not sure what the latest is, as I haven’t heard from them for a while. But it might be worth a look:
Thanks for both of the suggestions @james and @neil.
I have reached out to all of the organisation mentioned and will update on this post after the my return to Denmark again
