Bericht vom Reparatur Café am 9.7. im HdE

„Wegwerfen? No way. Reparieren ist nachhaltig, caring, gut für den Planeten!“ – das war das Motto des Reparatur Cafés am 9. Juli 2023 im Haus des Engagements. Ab 14 Uhr konnten Teilnehmer*Innen vorbeikommen und kleine Gegenstände und elektronische Geräte mitbringen, die sie mit Expert*innen gemeinsam reparieren konnten. Dazu gab es Snacks, Kaffee und Tee. Die Veranstaltung wurde im Rahmen des Moduls Service Learning International der Uni Freiburg mit dem Engagement von internationalen Studierenden auf die Beine gestellt. Ivonne Vera, eine der engagierten internationale Studierenden, schrieb dazu den folgenden Bericht:
