Abstract:The municipality of Rheden is one of the first Dutch municipalities to adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations into their organisation. This study aims to provide an insight into the change process of this organisation and the benefits of the SDGs in working together with citizens and private organisations. Grounded theory methodology is used for this specific situation, applying the 8-accelerator model of Kotter as a framework. Outcomes show that most of the accelerators are recognised in the process, but that little attention is given to the formation of a guiding coalition and the institutionalisation of the change. Furthermore, results indicate that the SDGs provide a shared framework and a common language for cooperation between the municipal organisation citizens and private companies.
