Conference theme: Wayfinding

Wayfinding is an ancient process for navigating unfamiliar territory towards an intended destination. It encompasses physical and mental processes, tools and strategies we can use to identify cues, interpret our surroundings and navigate through complex spaces. At aes24 we will seek cues about evaluation across four areas. We will explore our destination: evaluation that contributes to societal and planetary health. We invite critical inquiry about the footprints of evaluation considering equity, decolonisation and the environment. We will discuss and share evaluation tools, their role, benefits and risks. Finally, we consider the journey itself, how we learn and adapt in complex settings, shift the way we show up, and determine what skills, knowledge, and expertise we need today and in the future.
