REMAKE is a free community-based repair project that holds Repair Parties at universities around the world with a fun, collaborative spirit. We thrive on skill-sharing and collaborative learning to fix technology and our relationship with it!

E-waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams across the world.


We know the pace of our consumption has real social and environmental costs. And we know people are frustrated with the throwaway culture around them. But we can do something about it.

Overconsumption of consumer electronics is a widespread problem in most urban nuclei

 While society-wide action must be carried out to fix this problem, we can still do our little bit, starting with our own community. What REMAKE is trying to do is a minor action focused on the mid- to end-stage of consumer electronics’ lifecycle, but which has been shown to have major implications throughout this and other industries: repairing.

We believe that

A lack of understanding surrounding Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)and its effects
The overtly unfriendly third-party repair policies of most of Silicon Valley’s companies, and
A social context built around consumerism

― are largely to blame for the situation most developed economies have seen themselves in, not only in terms of WEEE, but in overall waste.


Yet, repairing, if done correctly and with the proper supervision, can be easy, fun, cheap and a great opportunity for the public to learn more about their own devices. As popularly promoted by iFixit, a wiki-based site that teaches people how to fix almost anything


Repair saves you money. It saves the environment. And it connects us to our things.
