In October Envie France, a nation-wide federation of regional and local social enterprises active in re-use and repair of electronics, organised an awareness raising campaign on repair by sending a repair truck to eight French cities.
The aim of the project was to encourage people to repair their broken devices and to explain the importance of keeping their products in working order. The repair truck visited eight major French cities and offered workshops for citizens. Over one week they attracted 3000 visitors and drew attention of French press and television. Envie is one of the best practice examples of a strong national re-use network, employing 2500 people in 50 work integration social enterprises.
