The Refer Project
Educate, discuss & engage aboutRaw Materials
To The Refer Project
Many people do not realise that the raw materials used in modern electronic appliances are scarce/critical in nature. They are crucial to the world economy and essential to maintaining and improving our modern quality of life. They are of paramount importance to the modern, technological world and the very real potential for supply interruptions is very disruptive to the economy and society.
Understanding Raw Materials
We are innovative
Creating a network of educational-driven, repair-based events
The project will undertake the creation and establishment of a network of educational-driven, repair-based events across 6 countries in Europe, allowing people to bring their small electrical and electronic devices to be repaired. At these events, attendees will be afforded the opportunity to repair their electronic devices and appliances with the aid of trained repairers and restarters. Attendees will sit down with expert volunteers and staff to understand how the technology works, identify the problems and affect repairs on the device. Participants can chat to repair personnel about the repair process, the nature of the technologies involved, the range and amounts of CRMs and other scarce resources and what can be done to address the lack of such resources.
