The Story Project

The Wisconsin Environmental Health Network (WHEN) Story Project is a collection of audio and written stories based on interviews with people from across Wisconsin facing environmental health issues that affect their lives. The purpose of the stories is to listen to Wisconsinites’ experiences, publicize the stories and educate the public about how to address similar issues. A diverse group of interviewees highlight different socioeconomic backgrounds, ages, races and may include chemical exposures, air pollution, water contamination, fracking or housing exposures such as to mold.
