Have you ever CELEBRATED failure? We build a new culture of failure. The Day for Failure is an international celebration of failure which takes place on October 13th.
Day for Failure
Anyone who has never failed
hasn’t done anything new
- Albert Einstein
Let us tell you something you already know
Our culture does not accept failure
Fear of failure prevails like a virus
The result is…
and new starts
Let’s re-shape our culture for failure
The one that accepts fear of failure, and understands it as a learning
experience and a natural part of starting anything new or bold.
In order to make it happen,
We must Celebrate Failure
Two years ago in Finland, we started our first The Day for Failure to celebrate
failure and promote understanding of failure as a learning experience and
a natural part of starting anything new or bold.
With a vision to eventually make October 13th a national flag-raising day, we’ve
interviewed most well-known figures and gathered people together to share their
failure stories and lessons learned.
To our surprise, extensive media coverage and attention from public followed.
Last year, we saw 80,000+ views for our videos, 300+ personal failure stories
shared, as well as 35+ articles covered by major newspapers. Given a small
population of Finland, this was no small number.
Since then, we came to truly believe in our power
to make the difference and aspire to amplify our
impact on a global scale.
We invite you to be part of this meaningful journey and get involved
with any activities possible to celebrate The International Day for
Failure in your own region.
