Levenslijn II City jam - Follow-up the development of the traffic safety game


The main goal of the Levenslijn Child Fund is to stimulate children and adolescents in stating safe behavior on the road by organizing a variety of campaigns.

The Levenslijn Child Fund consists of three sections:

  1. Prevention aiming at safer mobility among children and adolescents
  2. Better care of young victims of traffic accidents
  3. Scientific research concerning all problems that go together with mobility of children and adolescents

Levenslijn Child Fund was founded in 2002 by the VMMa (Flemish Media Association) and administered by a separate committee form the King Baudoin Foundation. The financial resources are supplied by Levenslijn activities and the VMMa.

Research design

In collaboration with the government, one will develop a game to enhance the awareness of road safety and to stimulate safe behavior on the road among adolescents.

In 2012, MICT was in charge of a research trajectory to develop a concept document for this game. This trajectory consisted of a state of the art, expert interviews, focus groups and co-design sessions with the target group. This had led to a location-based game concept, which in a first stage will be played in traffic free city zones of several Flemish cities.

In February 2013, the actual development of the game will start by citygame developer La Mosca. MICT will be responsible for involving the target group in different phases of the development.

MICT will start involving the target group at a relatively early stage of the development to gather input and feedback on game design. Further, MICT will be responsible for the testing of the game, both on usability as on effectiveness concerning the learning goals of the game.

Duration of the project

The project runs from 01/01/2013 - 31/12/2014.
