The residents of Slotermeer have a key position in the design process of the application. Two large-scale studies were performed in the neighborhood by actively involving Slotermeer residents in revealing the factors that they found important regarding the health of their neighborhood. The result of these studies formed the basis for the various health indicators which were embedded into the Kijk! app.
This project is a collaboration between the Amsterdam University of Applied Science, two governmental health institutions, i.e., National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) and the Public Health Service of Amsterdam (GGD Amsterdam), local community development organization Eigenwijks, and the municipality of Amsterdam City-district New-West.
