The Dutch climate movement has been resurgent over the past few years as continued inaction from both state and international bodies intensifies the salience of climate change as both a political and existential issue. The diverse array of strands which make up this movement are loosely united in their demands for futures which diverge, by different degrees, from the present systems of extractivist colonial capitalism which drive climate change. Such systems are marked in their absence of care, and as such, in this project I look at how different forms of the contemporary climate movement prefigure alternative futures through care practices, engaging with the emotional dynamics and power geometries which permeate them.
