NRRA Summer Series Webinar: The 6th R: Cultivating a Culture of Repair
Repair Cafe events are an empowering response to throw-away society, re-creating a culture that values reuse and repair over disposal. In two Vermont communities, Repair Cafés tap into locals’ knowledge to reduce waste by fixing broken or damaged items that would otherwise be thrown away. This webinar will explore the Repair Café model, lessons learned, community partnerships, nuts and bolts of hosting a repair event, and the broader context of the right to repair movement.
Join the Northeast Resource Recovery Association, your recycling nonprofit, for this webinar to discuss these issues. Ollie is the Waste Diversion Program Assistant and ECO AmeriCorps member at the Addison County Solid Waste District in Middlebury, Vermont. Cassandra Hemenway is the Outreach Manager of the Central VT Solid Waste District.
This webinar is available for both NRRA members and nonmembers. The following audiences are encouraged to participate: municipal recycling and transfer station staff, solid waste operators, public works staff, state and local government officials and staff, educators and community members. New Hampshire solid waste operators will receive one hour of continuing education credit for participating.
