The idea of Reskilling can be an interesting way for communities as well as for the individual to become more resilient, throw less stuff to the landfills and change the “disposable mindset”.
Description of the problem
We have nowadays a “use and throw” mindset, that leads us to buy new stuff before repairing older ones. And at the same time we are creating a gigantic problem with landfills and wastes. Tons of still usable material is thrown in landfills to rot or pollute the environment. On the other hand most of the urban population is becoming more and more incapable of “fixing” stuff at home, making us less resilient.
