Second edition of the Repair Café Haslital

Patch instead of throwing away! That is the motto in the Repair Café of the Haslital platform - and this for the second time. On October 17, 2020, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., dedicated and talented volunteers will repair all kinds of objects that are broken or no longer work properly. Due to the corona pandemic, this time the event will not take place in the location of the Haslital platform, but in the tram hall in Meiringen. Coffee and cake are also provided.

For the second time, the Haslital cooperative will be involved in Swiss Repair Day on October 17, 2020. This is an initiative of the Consumer Protection Foundation and is taking place for the fifth time this year. An important aspect of the Repair Cafés is sustainability: What works again is still needed and does not end up in the trash. This saves resources and money. Around 100 items were repaired in autumn 2019 at the first Repair Café in Meiringen - a complete success.

Motivated, volunteer repairers
The organizers of the Repair Café Haslital, Marco Liechti and Marcel Schwaiger, were once again able to convince committed repairers who volunteer to help mending objects for a day. Be it a pair of trousers with a hole, a toy train that no longer runs or a Bäbi who is missing an arm, the volunteer flickers take on all kinds of objects. And the success rate is impressive at around 90 percent last year. Electronic and electrical devices, textiles, wooden goods and toys can be patched. A 3D printer is also available, which has already provided good service for repairs. Spare parts can be partially restored in this way. If you have to wait or want to take a little break, you can have a coffee and eat cake in the tram hall.

And then to the cinema
After the Repair Café Haslital, production and consumption are also an issue in the Meiringen cinema.
In cooperation with the Friends of Cinema Meiringen, those interested can watch the film "Walden" on the said Saturday at 5 pm. In the film by Swiss producer Daniel Zimmermann, production realities are twisted. A tree from a forest in Austria is processed into thousands of wooden slats and then transported to the Brazilian rainforest. Zimmermann also questions the mechanisms of the globalized economy. The film will be shown again on Monday, October 20th at 8 p.m.

Repair Café and panel discussion on combat aircraft

Dear platformers, dear partners, interested parties

We would be happy to send you some reading material from the platform - because we’ve done a lot!

But first we would like to remind you: get ready the lamp that has stopped working, the chair that wobbles or the pants that have always been too long. Soon there will be another opportunity to repair or adjust all of these things: in the second Repair-Café Haslital. We look forward to numerous visitors and would like it if you could do some word-of-mouth for us! Many Thanks!

Note: This year, due to the Corona situation, we are repairing with a lot of space and air in the tram hall instead of - as last time - in the platform.

"More work-life balance in the future"
That was exactly what it was Title of an article about the Haslital platform in the Jungfrau Zeitung. In it, the journalist Nora Devenish showed that modern work infrastructures are attractive and important for locals and contribute positively to regional development. As the article describes, contemporary work opportunities such as those offered by co-working spaces are also an argument for newcomers to choose the Haslital.

Premiere: panel discussion on the draft of a vote on combat aircraft
Not voted yet? Not sure what yours when submitting "Federal resolution on the procurement of new combat aircraft" should throw in the urn and what does a yes or no mean for the Oberhasli? Then it's worth it to watch the panel debate on this very issue online. The platform has organized an event of this kind for the first time, the Jungfrau Zeitung recorded and moderated. Finally, on September 11th, around 30 interested people gathered in the auditorium of the Kapellen school building in Meiringen to follow the - partly emotional - votes of the panelists. It was important to the operating group as a platform to meet the requirements of a platform. In other words: Both the pro and the contra side should be taken into account and have their say. In our opinion, the premiere was a success and for those who prefer to read rather than watch, there is one for them here the discussion is summarized in one article.

Cooperative meeting #1 successfully carried out
And finally this: Due to the corona, the Haslital platform held its first general meeting of members of the cooperative on September 10, 2020 with a little delay. If you would like to see the annual report, you can send us a short message to or we will shortly be able to download it from our website.

Suffice it to say: We'll keep going:)

Kind regards, the platform company group

The platform in the Jungfrau newspaper

We recently received a visit from the Jungfrau Zeitung. Topic: New, flexible forms of work and offers such as the Haslital platform enable other life plans. Much will be different than before, much will be possible. So much that even city residents of Zurich take heart and decide to move to Hasli - which of course we understand only too well 😉


Panel discussion on combat aircraft

On the occasion of the vote on September 27, the Haslital platform is organizing a panel discussion in the Aula Meiringen on Friday, September 11, 2020 at 7 p.m. Opponents and supporters of the procurement of new combat aircraft will discuss together under the moderation of Matthias Mast (Platform Jungfrau Zeitung).
