Conservation Research Institute


Despite our best efforts, most of us are likely to experience failure at some point. While nobody likes to fail, how we deal with failure can make an enormous difference to our eventual results.

The Cambridge Conservation Initiative (CCI) Embracing Failures Project is a collaborative initiative working to identify practical steps for improving learning from failure in conservation.

To close out this project, CCI is hosting a webinar series to present the main findings of Embracing Failures. We will also showcase other initiatives working to improve learning from failure and engage participants in a discussion around the practical steps that all those involved in the delivery of conservation action can take to fully “embrace” failure as an essential part of the learning process.

There are three webinars in the series:

  • Webinar 1: Learning from Failure in Conservation: Barriers and Potential Solutions

  • Webinar 2: Destigmatising Failure in Conservation

  • Webinar 3: Learning from Failure in Practice

We encourage you to come to as many of these webinars as you would like. The webinars have been scheduled so that attendees in most time zones will be able to attend at least one session within or close to normal working hours. You are welcome to attend all the sessions, or just the ones you are interested in. All webinars will be recorded and available to download for all those who register.
