Repair is a simple act that can produce profound results. As a humble rebellion, the repair movement is quietly fixing the world by addressing issues of consumption, waste, unity, and poverty. Speakers in this session will share how repair has invigorated a worldwide Right to Repair policy movement, built community in San Diego, and aided Sudanese refugees in fixing their broken items in a Ugandan refugee camp.
