This chapter examines the concept of emergence in relation to the common conception of neighbourhood. It attempts to link the complexity concept of an order parameter with the policy concept of upstream interventions in social problems. The chapter introduces the concept of environment press and explores this idea with a novel study of the outdoor participation of people with dementia. It proposes a causal model of the neighbourhood system.

Keywords:   neighbourhood, policy concept, social problems, environment press, dementia, causal model
