Every Walk You Take


from 01/06/2023 until 15/12/2023

The aim of “Every Walk You Take” (EWYT) is to empower the local inhabitants of Barcelona to experience an active and healthy aging process. A uHealth platform with personalized healthy routes according to the user geo-localization, preferences and with real-time information on air quality and climate, will be co-created and tested in a pilot study in a project managed by a stakeholder community. In addition, the platform will integrate information collected by citizen scientists on barriers and facilitators for an active living. The proposed comprehensive approach is a step forward in social well-being. If health care is recognized as a universal right, EWYT offers an innovative way to give individuals scientifically proven tools that facilitate the healthy aging and the prevention of non- communicable diseases, the main causes of death in the European Union and worldwide.


The first aim is to co-design and prototype the EWYT uHealth platform for active living surveillance to promote a healthy aging in the context of the Smart City. 
The second objective is to evaluate the feasibility and usability of the EWYT uHealth platform in a pilot study and to identify the city barriers and facilitators for an active living and a healthy aging process through the collection of pictures and audio records.

Needed equipment

The equipment that will be needed for citizen scientists in the project is a smartphone (so that they can download the application) and they will need a stable connection to the Internet to access the functionalities of the application.
