Survey Outline

This survey is designed to help us answer one main research question: “What technical tools, scientific and engineering research, and development could serve the needs of environmental, energy, and climate justice community groups in the US?” We are hoping to engage more engineers and scientists with community-based justice work, and we want to ensure we are doing this in a way that is beneficial to community groups.

The survey outline is provided below, with questions in the order they will appear in the survey. The type of question is also described, either as an open ended text response or a multiple choice question. If you would like to learn more about this survey, or you think your group would benefit from taking this survey, please contact us!
