Case Description

During the first Corona wave, the local neighborhood organisation ‘Hart voor de K-buurt’ in Amsterdam (i.e., ‘heart for the K-neighborhood) decided to support the municipality in spreading information about the new social distancing rules. Within the K-neighborhood, social distancing measures were often not being followed. In order to share clearly and effectively the right information, the neighborhood organization put in place large banners in public and semi-public spaces with straightforward messages and guidelines on how to keep distance and stay safe.

Relation to Resilience

Banners in public space can give inform public space users about social distancing measures, providing people with the necessary information to adapt their behavior to a pandemic situation.
