RePLAY Festival for families, November Edition
A festival aimed at all ages, focused on revitalising e-waste, circular economy and repairing, where everyone can play, learn and create! What is the value of old toys? Can we still use it by fixing it or making new toys with it? And if not, how do we part from it in a sustainable way? During the activity kids and their families repaired, disassembled, and revamped old toys (brought by them and donated by thrift shops), with the assistance of makers (from hackerspaces, FABlabs, etc.). Another part of the Festival was RePLAY Mini, where younger children (<8 years old) could get started with using tools and taking apart toys, honing their motor skills and learning about the various electronic parts, which could then be reused. Anything that was no longer useful was broken down for recycling.
