Generation Fix

Designing Educational Toolkits to Accelerate Digital Circular Economy Education Within Local Communities

Generation Fix is leveraging creative and collaborative design research methods to develop a practical, ‘hands on’ educational toolkit which accelerates Digital Circular Economy repair skills and know-how within local communities.

E-waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the world and ever-increasing numbers of discarded electronics are characterised as ‘smart’ devices. It is therefore essential that more people become empowered with better expertise and tools for conducting digital technology repair.

However, whilst citizens display deep enthusiasm for this green transition, there exists an inherent ‘repair skills gap’ in communities. The Generation Fix project is helping to close this gap.

The team is designing Re:Play kits which teach vital technology repair knowledge and Digital Circular Economy literacy, while building transferable skills like creative problem-solving.
