An energetic change, how does the neighbourhood Spijkerkwartier prepare itself? A study about how different goal frames and alignment strategies contribute to the implementation of a territorial foresight.
This is a single case study about the contribution of the different goal frames and alignment strategies to a territorial foresight. The study is executed in the Dutch neighbourhood Spijkerkwartier, which is situated in the city of Arnhem. Data is retrieved from a literature study, conducting interviews and conducting an observation. In the study a distinction between three different goal frames is made, namely a normative-, a gain- and a hedonistic goal frame. Actors have different goal frames which influences their decision-making process. When these goal frames are not aligned, misalignment might arise, which is a disadvantage to the implementation of the territorial foresight. In this study the different alignment strategies are handled to overcome the goal frames and how the goal frames with the alignment strategies contribute to the implementation of a territorial foresight. The territorial foresight in this study has been set by the central government of the Netherlands. All houses need to be disconnected from gas by 2050. This study shows that by aligning the goal frames of actors it becomes easier to implement a territorial foresight.
