Blue Marble Evaluation. It is good to have been engaged in it from the beginning, and to be on its Advisory Council. It is the future of evaluation if we wish to contribute to urgently needed transformations in the era of the Anthropocene. Understanding the connections between the local and the global (eco)systems that affect everything. Working within, respecting and recognising the influence to ignore artificial lines that societies have drawn around themselves, yet also able to ignore them. Understanding the interplay and interdependence of yin and yang, of light and dark. Of the need for balance and harmony.
