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.
