Working in collaboration with our community partner The Making Rooms Blackburn, IAA ESRC EPSRC funded The Repair Shop 2049 project has focussed on the limitations of the recently implemented Right-to-Repair legislation which does not account for the repair of 'smart' Internet of Things (IoT) devices whose unsustainable disposal actively contributes to electronic waste and material scarcity. Using the notion of a future high street ‘Repair Shop’ as its lens, this film provides an overview of the project which brought together community stakeholders to collectively envision pathways for developing new localised device repair ecosystems and circular economies.
