Abstract [en]

As young people navigate their way through life, they're faced with the daunting reality of climate change and how it could impact their future. This can lead to worry and concern which in worst case can turn into climate anxiety, which can be debilitating. The purpose of this study is to gain insight into the concerns of Dutch youth aged 18 to 25 who aren't directly involved in climate action. The aim is to understand the barriers preventing participation in climate activism and identify the alternative ways in which they express their worries. The study used semi-structured interviews and thematic analysis which identified worries about the impact of climate change on both their future and the world. They also expressed a sense of powerlessness and criticized political inaction. Although they conversations as an outlet of their worry, they feel different barriers to express their emotions or participating in climate action. The study is analysed with the concepts of citizenship and civic engagement, identifying elements of civic engagement while noting a lack of political participation on this topic. Effective communication strategies and opportunities for expression can bridge the gap, prevent climate anxiety, and promote active citizenship.
