As we use increasing amounts of technology in our everyday lives, we need more and more resources to build them. For example, mobile phones- currently 44.8% of the global population owns a smartphone, that’s 3.5 billion people! To build these phones, we need elements that come from rocks and minerals that are mined from the earth. But, do we have enough? Join GeoBus and explore the challenge that earth scientists are facing in making sure we have enough of these elements, while keeping our environment safe as well as the people who carry out the mining.
