Planning for Success and Failure
Rochelle Smalls and Harrison Parker

Learning to fail and living to tell a public story is just as important for democratic work as it is for scientific discovery. We learn from our success and failure. It is valuable to maintain a focus on your definition of civic learning as well as the Public Achievement core concepts and public skills. PA champions often say, “The process is more important than the product.”
