Dare to Repair

This week I’m presenting a new BBC Radio 4 series: Dare to Repair. The series examines the repair of household goods in a 21st century world of fast-fashion, disposible electronics, and made-to-break appliances. With UK and EU Right-to-Repair legislation set to change the rights of citizens to access and carry out repairs on some household appliances, this series asks how we got in such a state of dis-repair, what happened to our skills at repairing, and what citizens, retailers, and manufacturers can do to change – would you dare to repair?! This series also launches our work on a new 3-year research project, as partners in The Interdisciplinary Centre for Circular Metal.
