The project aims to mobilise the students to repair dysfunctional devices belonging to the inhabitants of the community around the school. This allows both technical and vocational students to face concrete problems similar to those that they will confront in their future professional life. It also strengthens their links with their local community, in particular with the elderly and disadvantaged people. Finally, it helps them to acquire and enhance their technical and entrepreneurial skills while raising their awareness on issues of sustainability and circular economy.
