A Repair Manifesto

Platform21 is "a platform for people curious about the future." They organize exhibitions and lectures from an old chapel in Amsterdam. Their current project, launching on March 13, is one dear to our hearts: Repair, not recycle. Their manifesto is written to inspire designers and consumers, and to "start a movement."

Full manifesto below the fold; we will watch what comes out of this project with interest.
