As part of Youth in Evaluation Week, this event will bring together perspectives, stories and lessons from our collaboration working on the Food Systems Summit to explore how intergenerational evaluation can be informed by, and inform, the principles of Blue Marble Evaluation. In particular, we will explore the following principles and questions:
Cross-silos Principle: Connect across sectors and issues. How can intergenerational evaluation contribute to an expanded definition of what working across silos means for Blue Marble evaluation?
Yin-yang Principle: Harmonize conceptual opposites. How can intergenerational evaluation support us to seek out and engage with different perspectives, integrate divisions, transcend boundaries, and overcome polarities?
Glocal Principle: Integrate interconnections across levels (local, national, regional, global). How can intergenerational evaluation support an exploration of how people, information, and resources flow from local to global, and global to local?
We hope this event will generate concrete ideas for how to implement Blue Marble evaluation through an intergenerational lens in support of transformational change.
