Reuse: Conference Bag
Boomerang Bags is a grassroots, community driven movement tackling plastic pollution at its source. Volunteers from all walks of life (including CES members!) get together to make re-usable ‘boomerang bags’ using recycled materials, as a means to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. The bags create a platform to start conversations, make friends, up-cycle materials and work towards shifting society’s throw away mentality to a more sustainable revolution of re-use – one community, needle and thread at a time!

Together we link hands globally to create a paradigm shift to a more connected and conscious society.

Please note that colours and patterns of fabric vary, as well as the labels.
Conference Bag
Recycle: Green Calgary (CES Carbon Offset Initiative)
As part of CES commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability, we ask attendees to consider a small carbon offset contribution that will be donated to a local environmental organization. 
Since 1978, Green Calgary has been a leading urban environmental charity supporting Calgarians in living a more sustainable life; helping them take effective environmental action in their homes, work places, schools, and communities. They offer education, training, event greening, and the ecoStore. Green Calgary works with individuals and groups throughout Calgary, to help minimize environmental footprints large and small.

Below are some options to assist you in offsetting your carbon footprint.
Volunteer Opportunities
Would you like to volunteer at the conference?:
Buddy Program
  • The Buddy Program is an initiative developed to help first time conference attendees, particularly students, emerging evaluators and international delegates, to be more comfortable and well-oriented to the conference. They will be paired with a seasoned evaluator “buddy” during the conference to help them navigate the conference. Through this pairing, students, emerging evaluators and international delegates will gain a better understanding of evaluation practice by exchanging with an experienced peer and evaluator buddies will also learn through exchange.  
  • Participants and buddies, who will be matched based on their interests and experiences, will meet virtually before the conference. At the start of the conference, they will have the opportunity to meet in person and plan to spend some time together during the conference (e.g. during networking breaks and lunch). The evaluator buddy will also assist the participant with any questions about the sessions and logistics during the conference.
