A final CREACE report explores future scenarios of a repair society.
A Circular Economy is a pathway towards realising sustainable production and consumption. In this report, the repair of broken products as part of a future circular economy is explored. It is argued that in western societies repair is currently not the normal response to product breakage. However, increasing legislative efforts and grassroots movements are attempting to change that and make repair accessible, affordable and culturally acceptable. The question is what such a society – where repair is normalised – would be like. This report reflects the findings from the development of repair society scenarios and a visioning workshop with stakeholders.
