One last update: we’ve more sign-ups, from groups across the UK, they are still coming.
Additionally, we’ve had support from allies such as Greenpeace UK, Green Alliance (credible think-tank), Bioregional (involved SDG12 work here in the UK). Still waiting on a couple of other potential “allies” but it already looks impressive.
In lieu of a massive petition, this is really useful for us, and we can point media to this to show the broad-based support we have in the UK.
Copy and remix in your country!
Just noting, for those in other countries (ahem, Italy, Norway, Iceland, Spain) who might want to adopt a similar approach, to create a “roundtable” or loose coalition to support the “Right to Repair” - the site is licensed as Creative Commons. It’s Wordpress, and you are welcome to borrow/remix the structure, code, etc. @neil or @ugo can answer questions
Here are the steps we took:
- Collaboratively draft the Declaration
- Get permission by drafters to sign (acknowledging them on the site)
- Put up a site with a basic, GDPR-compliant contact collection form
- Send around the website, including posting group pages
- Personally contact “allies” and ask for their institutional support
- [Future] send key updates/actions on R2R in country to signers
We hope someday soon we might see the Turin Declaration too!
