Fear of failure prevails like a virus The result is…No timely Discouraged Massiveaction for bold actions sufferingsproblems and new starts and stigmas
Let’s re-shape our culture for failureThe 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 celebratefailure and promote understanding of failure as a learning experience anda natural part of starting anything new or bold.With a vision to eventually make October 13th a national flag-raising day, we’veinterviewed most well-known figures and gathered people together to share theirfailure 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 storiesshared, as well as 35+ articles covered by major newspapers. Given a smallpopulation of Finland, this was no small number.Since then, we came to truly believe in our powerto make the difference and aspire to amplify ourimpact on a global scale.
