Guelph is a role model for environmentally friendly actions for Canada. As people move away from disposable materialism, the future will demand more sharing of communal goods in centrally managed hubs, and public repair and creation facilities. We are proactively preparing for this with the Guelph Tool Library, our Repair Cafes, and a proposed makerspace. We have established the tool library and the repair cafes, and now it is time to expand our educational component with a makerspace by either building one or partnering with DiYode. Negotiating our way forward will require some short term support.
