Young adults who prepare to acquire their apprenticeship leave certificates in mechatronics and electronics help those who would themselves like to repair their photographic cameras, hair-driers or electric kettles over a cup of coffee. The Repair Café, open one afternoon a week, is visited by men and women in equal numbers. Here, repairs that would be considered uneconomical under market conditions bring double benefit: on the one hand, planned obsolescence is prevented; on the other hand a qualification measure gains a meaningful practical aspect. The offer is to be extended to mobile phones and notebooks.
