Chapter 6 examines how contemporary cultural and local debates have engaged in effective environmental critique. It focuses in the strengths and limitations of art and social media as an effective method for rethinking climate change. In particular, this chapter considers how regional art responds to the theme of water, such as in the Australian-based Spatial Dialogues public art project, the Touchmedia—Eco Art project, Chen Qiulin’s River, River project in China, and Japanese projects such as the BOAT PEOPLE Association (BPA) and the Green Island Project.

Keywords:   Ecocritical theory, “green” design, eco-city, public art, the politics of water
