Repair Cafés are meeting places for amateurs and experts, for people with more or less technical skills, who come together to repair defective everyday objects in order to extend their useful lives. The objectives are to teach respect for limited resources, avoid costly purchases and reduce waste. Repair Café Graz (the seed of which was sown at Barcamp Graz) has been held regularly at Spektral since 2013. It is open and free for all who need specific technical advice, want to inform themselves or wish to help others with their own knowledge.
