International Repair Day

International Repair Day is a global, annual event celebrated on the Third Saturday in October. It is an opportunity for communities to come together - local, national and international - to raise awareness about the benefits of repair, and to repair together. Repair Café Aotearoa launched on the 5th International Repair Day, on 16 October 2021. We hold an online event each year on this date to highlight awesome members of our Repair Community, learn about advancements in the Right to Repair Movement, and learn some repair skills along the way.
