About the "Reparieren macht Schule e.V." (the Fixing Things for the Future Association)
We believe that everyone should be able to be able to experience repairing things! Why? Read more…
Experience and scientific analysis of the world’s first Student Repair Shop at the Munich Rudolf Steiner School Schwabing have both shown that not only do young people learn to get broken things working again and make a valuable contribution to sustainability and climate protection through the process of repairing things – the educational outcomes of repairing things go much further: Repairing things promotes practical life skills, self-confidence, self-efficacy, social learning and the courage to engage with unknown situations.
To encourage as many other schools and other organizations that work with young people as possible to follow suit, we created the handbook “Fixing Things for the Future”>>Link.
And the Reparieren macht Schule e.V. (Fixing Things for the Future Association) was founded to help spread these ideas. The eleven founding members created the association on March 28, 2019. The association was officially entered into Germany’s Registry of Associations June 10 of that year, and officially recognized as a non-profit organization on July 15, 2019.
The association is especially interesting for “disseminators” and decision makers at primary- and secondary educational institutions.
Test of an extracurricular concept: The concept is designed to familiarize young people and their parents with the "experience repair” approach and to arouse their interest through a free introductory offer. Those who are interested can then attend an eight-meeting course.
Development of film modules: In cooperation with an experienced filmmaker, we are developing cinematic modules on the topic of "Enabling children and young people to experience repairing things".
Public relations: The association conducts its own public relations work and constantly takes part in public events having to do with repair and sustainability.
