The RISBRIEFCASE project intends to improve the public perception of mining activities and raise awareness, bringing minerals and mining closer to society.
The project has developed innovative tools dedicated to pupils from 6 to 14 years old to show the significance of the daily use of raw materials and their exploitation focusing on sensible aspects of mining activities such as the Not In My Backyard concept, the consequences of our purchase decisions, the conflict minerals, the sustainability of mining operations, the value chain transparency, the social license to operate, the climate change or the importance of the recycling practices. We inspire and encourage pupils to follow raw materials careers.
The RISBRIEFCASE consortium encourages RIS entities to submit their proposals to support the project by creating new briefcases, hosting workshops and commercializing our tools to extend the BRIEFCASE network and multiply the impact of the project in the RIS areas.
