Updates on Program Offerings
WISCIENCE Public Service Fellow Adrian George partnered with the Policy & Engagement Coordinator at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources to develop a strategy for the identification of risk and disproportionate impacts of pollution and climate change for communities in Wisconsin. They researched other states’ approaches to environmental justice screening and analyzed Wisconsin’s existing data to write a proposal recommending a methodology to be used to best approach these environmental impacts on a large-scale initiative in Wisconsin.
