This video is part of SCRREEN2 multilingual communication campaign on raw materials that aims at informing the general public, as well as professional audiences, about their importance in our everyday life and on the role they will have to play in the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in the EU. The campaign addresses different matters related to raw materials: the notion of criticality for achieving the EU’s ambitions and how the list of critical raw materials is elaborated every three years by the European Commission, the contribution of raw materials to SDGs, the importance of raw materials for the green transition, etc.
