Mathew will talk about open hardware and the repair culture. He will delve into the International Repair Day (IRD), which is an annual event dedicated to promoting the importance of repair and its positive impact on the environment, economy, and society as a whole. It is a day when people, organizations, and communities come together to raise awareness about the benefits of repairing products instead of discarding them and buying new ones.
