Antiheroes wants that "failure" can be considered as part of innovation process and want to improve social enterpreneurs capacity to learn from their/others mistakes.
The idea of recording and analyzing failure isn’t innovative. In fact, in other domains it’s been happening for a very long time. Take for example the case of black boxes in airplanes. When the purpose of common good is important enough – in this case, a matter of keeping people alive while in flight from place A to B – it suddenly becomes undisputedly logical to record failures and make sure they are never replicated. However, in the context of Social Innovation and Europe, talking about failure is lke staging a small revolution. It’s not inherent in our culture to be open about this topic. But thinking of the example of black boxes, it makes all the more sense to break this taboo. Because we are more often than not striving towards common goals, such as finding ways out of youth unemployment and male-female inequalities. We should share what doesn’t work, to prevent wasting time, money and effort on trying methods that have been tested and failed before.
