Wisconsin Environmental Equity Tool
Thank you for participating in the State of Wisconsin’s survey seeking public input on the design of the Wisconsin Environmental Equity Tool (WEET). The survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete and your responses are confidential.
Four state agencies are developing a new assessment tool, called the Wisconsin Environmental Equity Tool or WEET, to better understand public health impacts from environmental hazards, climate change, poverty, racism, and other social and economic conditions. WEET will analyze and visualize data in an online map to help pinpoint communities in Wisconsin that face environmental and public health challenges. Local, regional and state government agencies, as well as community members, nonprofits, public health organizations, elected officials, and others can then focus investment to create healthy, resilient communities for all.
The purpose of the survey is to hear from community members who are often overlooked and, as a result, face the greatest environmental and health consequences, particularly Tribal Nations, communities of color, low-income families, and rural communities. Your feedback, along with input from three virtual listening sessions, will help guide the development of WEET to ensure the mapping tool reflects what is happening in the real world.
