The wonderful Munasafn RVK Tool Library is not just a place to hire a hammer instead of buying one new, but has now unfurled itself into an umbrella organisation for projects aiming to expand and implement a circular economy in Iceland. This event—originally a hybid live/online affair, now pushed entirely online as a pandemic precaution—will investigate how our societies can move towards a circular economy, including making our approach to damaged goods one of repair rather than replacement.
