Professor Leanne Wiseman
Professor Leanne Wiseman and the Australian Repair Network would like to invite you to the 2023 Australian Repair Summit on Friday, 11 August 2023 at the National Library, Canberra. This will be a free in-person event, with the option of also attending online.
This summit provides an opportunity for interested Repair stakeholders to genuinely engage with Government, policy makers and industry to discuss recent developments in the Right to Repair movement in an event that welcomes discussion, relevant questions, and respectful debate.
The program for 2023 Australian Repair Summit will be available shortly.
2023 has been a huge year for the Right to Repair movement across the globe! You will hear about international developments from Right to Repair experts from the United States, Canada and the European Union. Many of the policy responses and legislative initiatives showcased will provide us with the opportunity to examine the impact of differing approaches to building a thriving Australian repair economy.
While many of the barriers that were documented by the Productivity Commission's 2021 Right to Repair Report still exist, we will be exploring opportunities to recognise and quantify the value of repair and reuse in our communities. We aim to highlight tangible examples of how repair-friendly actions, policies and supports can bring about real change in the way we act and think about the role that repair can play in helping Australia move to a circular economy.
The Australian Repair Summit provides attendees with an opportunity to network and contribute to the conversation on the important role that repair policy and actions play in Australia's future. We look forward to welcoming you.
There is no cost to attend this event.
Additionally, the 2023 Australian Repair Summit NetworkingEvent will be held, in person only, after the full day summit on Friday, 11 August 2023 from 4:30pm-6:00pm. This is also a free event but we do ask that you indicate whether you will be attending or not.
