Abstract

In this chapter it is argued that fundamental change in society is required, because environmental problems are serious and ask for a factor 10 or more shift in society, the resilience approach (as outlined in Chap. 2 ) implies change to higher resilience systems and current spatial planning is unable to facilitate fundamental change. Transition of an existing system into a better version of the same system does not comply with the demands of fundamental changes. Instead of choosing for the pathway of change, a change of pathway is required. This transformation of the existing stable regime (system A) into a fundamental other regime (system B) is able to meet the urgency to change. However, Transformation of a system is only possible when the new system is fundamental separated from the original and is capable to develop its own growth curve. The proposed pathway courses via B-minus. A predecessing state of system B consisting of rudimentary spatial elements, which can be observed as critical early warning signals and can be created at speci fi c intersections in the network. These signals require a spatial translation to become useful in spatial planning. Network analysis is needed to determine the locations where to create starting points for a system change.
