This article presents the findings of scenario planning workshops held on 10 and 13 December
2013 on the futures of ‘China (PRC) in 2035’ at the Graduate Institute of Futures Studies (GIFS) at
Tamkang University in Taiwan. The workshops were structured around Inayatullah’s (2008) six pillars
foresight process and employed the futures triangle, causal layered analysis and creation of scenarios
to create plausible futures. Four images were imagined: (1) the probable future, The King of the World
or Next Superpower; (2) the feared future, The Hunger Games (China Threat), (3) the preferred future,
A New Gaia; and (4) the alternative future, New Revolution.
