Who are we?

The Restart Projectaims for a shift of behaviour towards a more sustainable and a happier relationship with our electronics. We started by organising community electronic repair events in London which we call "Restart Parties". These have now been replicated across the globe, which we support with resources such as, which includes the Fixometer, a software tool for estimating e-waste and CO2 emission savings. We are also highly active in promoting Right to Repair, and are founding members of the Open Repair Alliance.

Our story.

We share iFixit's ethos and greatly appreciate its work, which complements our own. In October 2017 iFixit CEO Kyle Wiens visited and spoke at our International Fixfest, organised to celebrate our 5 years of existence, returning a visit by our co-founder Janet Gunter to iFixit HQ in January 2016. We have had discussions on various occasions with a view to understanding better how together we can support the repair movement.

We believe that our Restart Parties shouldn't just be a chance for a free repair but rather an opportunity for people to understand their devices better in order to be able to keep them longer, make better buying choices, and maybe even start repairing their own devices.

Sharing our Knowledge

In support of that aim we have established a Restart Project Wiki as a place to share our knowledge and skills. A growing collection of pages cover general topics such as Repairing with Others, Techniques Skills and Tools, Understanding how stuff works (or doesn't), and a series of articles covering a wide range of computer hardware and software, gadgets and domestic items. Unlike the many excellent iFixit repair guides we concentrate on general principles applicable to whole classes of items rather than specific makes and models, assuming the minimum of prior knowledge but only a curiosity about how things work and a willingness to learn.

We would welcome additional wiki authors and editors. If you have knowledge to share and are able to express it clearly then please get in touch.
