Join the Rediscovery Centre and the Environmental Protection Agency for an open and frank Circular Economy Conversation on the Right To Repair. This webinar will be live at 1pm on Thursday 17th of June.
Dr. Sarah Miller, CEO of the Rediscovery Centre will moderate an open Q&A session discussing how the future of repair will change for individuals, designers and producers as well as its role within Ireland’s circular economy strategy.
Repairing products, and making products more repairable, is central to a circular economy. Measures to increase and promote repair are underway in EU and national circular economy policy. Empowering people with the “right to repair” is part of those measures.
