This graduation project focuses on one of our government's important tasks: spatial planning. Recent events have shown us that our current planning system has become insufficient: it is unable to cope with our rapidly changing society. Research on new and adaptive forms of collaborative planning is conducted. Forms that can be used alongside existing planning methods tp provide a helping hand in achieving ambitious planning goals, such as energy self-sufficiency or maintaining liveability in areas that cope with a shrinking population. The new planning method is based on communication and collaboration between important actors from all layers of society: science, policy, and civil society. The research is tested on and optimalized for the Hoeksche Waard region.
