Repair Café Aotearoa NZ

Repair Café Aotearoa NZ supports local Repair Cafés to repair your personal belongings for free, and pass on repair skills to you.

Nationwide

Repair Cafés are free pop-up events where local people bring in their broken or damaged belongings and local volunteer experts do their best to repair them. The aim of Repair Café Aotearoa New Zealand (RCANZ) is to foster a culture of repair in New Zealand.

Repair Café Aotearoa New Zealand (RCANZ) operates to support existing repair cafés scattered across the country with promotion, advocacy, and capacity building to amplify the impacts of repair for local communities. By reducing duplication of organisational processes, providing promotional and practical support for event organisers, RCANZ enables local groups to focus on engaging their communities, supporting their volunteers, and providing fun and inclusive events that build connection, support community resilience, and reduce waste. Assistance with setting up a repair café in one's neighbourhood is another focus of RCANZ. There are over 50 Repair Cafés running in New Zealand, and more are popping up all the time.

RCANZ is currently run by a small, volunteer steering committee who dedicate their time to this national endeavour.

RCANZ sits within the context of the International Repair Café movement (2009), the Right to Repair movement, and advocacy for mandatory Product Stewardship in New Zealand. Making products repairable and durable by design is an essential step toward waste minimisation, decarbonisation and climate justice, a goal that RCANZ supports actively with its collaborators.
