In stark contrast to the imminent dystopia often depicted in today’s media,Visionary Evaluation for a Sustainable, Equitable Future brings the reader some much-needed optimism. Through engaging, Socratic dialogue, readers are ushered into 2030, a year the authors have designated the Anthropocene, where anthropogenic ecological and climate change have nearly reached a point of no return on Earth. Coincidentally, this benchmark coincides with the Sustainable Development Goals’ (SDGs) conclusion, in which collective learning, knowledge sharing, and capacity building are expected to contribute to stronger evaluation systems and practices. This alignment is reflected in introductory chapters (Chapters 1–3) which set the stage using self-reflective interchange, in an attempt to find solutions to the world’s most difficult challenges. Challenges such as the trend toward mass extinction, technological advancement and artificial intelligence, and environmental sustainability and equity are explored in detail, using collaborative evaluation and transnational partnership as potential means to overcome these obstacles for the planet and its peoples in this new epoch.
