ACADEMIC: The purpose of this paper is to unpack the discourse on Chinaâ€™s futures, with a particular focus upon the relationship of Chinese people and the environment. The goal is to problematise the dominant discourse, and view the issue though new perspectives.

Two possible scenarios for Chinaâ€™s futures will be used as a focus: Brave New China and the Harmonious Society.
