This chapter moves from a characterization of top-down, technocratic and market-oriented interventions in climate governance by state and corporations as hegemonic forces of depoliticization. Such a consensual regime of climate change governance leaves untouched the power of capital, the rule of the market and the global imperial hierarchies underpinning both. The chapter brings forth the contestations to this state of af fairs by climate activists and grassroots mobilizations. By focusing on the tension between consensus and dissent, De Rosa analyses the strategies through which three activist groups repoliticize the climate in the context of Sweden’s and Malmö’s climate governance, detailing how they challenge the socio-ecological dominant order and how they contribute to the articulation of counter-hegemonic relations across scales.
