When: 3 Dec 2020 at 15:30 (1 h) or 4 Dec 2020 at 16:30
Play with your friend to the new digital RAWsiko, inspired by the classic game “Risiko!”
The game is set in a not defined future where China decided to close its borders. From this moment, a desperate “raw materials rush” begins. You are the head of a company and you have to secure access to the Critical Raw Materials for your business!
Raw MatTERS Ambassadors at Schools
invite you to play with them online.
Please, enroll to have fun and learn about the Raw Materials issue.
♦ Quiz: Who wants to be RM Ambassador? - NTUA (GR)
When: 3 Dec 2020 at 16:15 (45 min)
This on-line quiz game is based on the concept of the well-known TV quiz “Who wants to be a millionaire?”
It includes questions of increasing difficulty on raw materials (RM).
The main objectives of the game are to provide knowledge about the RM origin, properties, uses, etc., to highlight their importance in our everyday lives.
♦ Mineral resources, sustainability and history in Congo -
Geological Survey of Sweden SGU (SE)
When: 3 Dec 2020 at 14:30 (1 h)
The Democratic Republic of Congo has been in active conflict during several hundred years, many times due to the country’s rich natural resources – i.e. minerals like cobalt, copper and uranium. This webinar is focused on complex societal issues about human rights, sustainability and mineral resources and sustainable development on the basis of Congo history. The webinar is given by two geologists who have lived and worked in Congo for several years and have in-depth knowledge of the current situation.
♦ Raw materials in solar cells: state of art and perspective -
University of Milano Bicocca (IT)
When: 3 Dec 2020 at 15:00 (30 min)
All major future energy scenarios forecast a key role for photovoltaic solar energy (PV). PV is renewable and has a huge global potential. The raw material of almost all solar cells today iscrystalline silicon that is one of the most widely available elements. A reliable and low-cost supply of raw materials ensures that solar will continue to become an increasingly attractive source of electricity. In this webinar after a short review of the state of art pf the PV, we will consider raw materials availability for the various solar-pv technologies and which role they play into the future of PV manufacturing and development.
Did you know that rocks have an enormous influence on your life? From sources of water and energy to different metals and minerals, even our buildings and infrastructure are made of them. Have you ever picked up a rock and stored it somewhere in your home? It is a good time to find it again. Join a webinar and learn more about your rock and its use with the RockCheck app on your mobile phone.
A short introduction will be given on critical raw materials and the circular economy, exposing the problem of electronic waste and electric batteries, as well as the need for urban mining.
At the end a Kahoot quiz will be held to reinforce the knowledge that has been explained.

♦ Innovation for Sustainability -
Myclimate, Switzerland (CH)
When: 4 Dec 2020 at 14:30 (75 min)
How to explore new and innovative ideas to tackle sustainability issues? Participants will solve a sustainability challenge in small groups and create projects and business ideas. Guided by a clear process and visual elements, they learn to ask the right questions and find answers. Let’s be creative!
♦ The WEEE jungle: the (electronic) urban mining -
ERION, Italy, (IT)
When: 4 Dec 2020 at 14:45 (45 min)
Do you want to discover more about what e-waste (electronic waste), officially known as WEEE, are? And to follow their entire value chain? Join this webinar and you will also find out that both your video-game console and your smartphone are “pocket mines” and how many important materials are in this waste stream and! In addition, there will be a few interactive questions via Mentimeter.com and the vision of one short video (4’30’’).
♦ 3D Mapping of Flooded Mine by Robotic System -
University of Miskolc (HU)
When: 4 Dec 2020 at 15:30 (30 min)
A novel robotic system was developed for the autonomous exploration and mapping of Europe’s flooded mines.
The Robotic Explorer platform, made by three robots, uses non-invasive methods for autonomous 3D mine mapping for gathering valuable geological, mineralogical and spatial information.

♦ Circular economy: creating a world without waste (interactive quiz) -
VITO, Belgium (BE)
When: 4 Dec 2020 at 15:45 (30 min)
This online workshop offers a combination of informative content and interactivity by means of a quiz. The aim is to present the raw material challenges
that are a consequence of our wasteful linear economy and to outline the principles of circular economy using everyday products and services. Participants are invited to think about an economy that manages materials in a linear way and propose solutions.
♦ Sustainable hydrogen and carbon supply and energy mining -
Montanuniversität Leoben (MUL) (A)
When: 4 Dec 2020 at 16:20 (20 min)
Sustainable Carbon Supply and Energy Mining based on Methane decomposition is seen as a major contribution to a future carbon footprint reduction while maintaining a sustainable supply with raw materials and green energy.
A Circular Economy is an economic concept in which products, materials and raw materials should remain in circulation for as long as possible, thereby seeking to minimise the amount of waste generated. The concept covers all stages of a product's life cycle - from design, through production, consumption, to waste.
Its main objective is to move away from a linear economy (where waste is treated as the last stage of the life cycle) and shift towards the circular economy model where that the resulting waste is treated as secondary raw materials.
Workshops for teachers
♦ Online Teaching – Didactical Approaches, Tools and Open Discussion - RWTH Aachen University (DE)
When: 3 Dec 2020 at 15:30 (1 h)
In an interactive session we will discuss the current situation and challenges of online teaching. Which tools are available?
What possibilities do I have to interact with my students?
How can I best combine synchronous and asynchronous work phases?
Teachers can learn to design their online teaching lessons with didactic concepts in mind, share their own experiences and get to know different tools that facilitate interaction and collaboration.
Register to the meeting by 02/12/2020.
