*The Blue Marble Working group is currently an ad hoc group of individuals who serve as thought partners and collaborators on the development of the Blue Marble Principles and network. As the network grows, there may be further opportunities for members to take a leadership or advisory role.
While a global approach to transforming evaluation is necessary, we also recognize the value of connecting with fellow Blue Marble Evaluators across specific regions and/or issues. Our first active BME Hub has formed in Eastern and Southern Africa.
If you are interested in forming a hub in another region or focused on a specific issue, please contact us.
This forum is dedicated to members wishing to engage more deeply with Michael Quinn Patton's book, Blue Marble Evaluation: Premises and Principles. Each chapter has its own thread. There you can find links to the recordings of discussions from 2020. The book club is only available to members of the Blue Marble Evaluation network. Join the network to join the conversation! All videos can be viewed on our YouTube channel.
