The Repair Shop 2049: Fixing the Future for Smart Devices
How smart are our smart devices if we cannot repair them? By 2030, 25 billion smart devices like phones, speakers and watches will be in everyday use worldwide. When their hardware breaks or software will not support updates, many will end up in landfill contributing to climate change. The Repair Shop 2049 stall will feature fun and creative activities run in conjunction with The Making Rooms Blackburn which help to highlight how communities can begin to improve the repair of smart tech at a local level. This will include how to solder your own LED light up Repair Shop 2049 badge!
