Making the world a better place is Girl Scout Law, so it’s no surprise we have a holiday dedicated to doing just that. Each February 22, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides across 150 countries celebrate World Thinking Day. It’s a day of international friendship and a time to stand up for causes that could improve the lives of girls around the globe. And while the holiday itself comes in February, the World Thinking Day Award can be earned at any time of year.
The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), which you—as a Girl Scout—are part of, has celebrated World Thinking Day since 1926. Observed by 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts worldwide, World Thinking Day has a different theme each year. In 2022, the theme is “Our World: Our Equal Future: The Environment and Gender Equality.”
Service Unit 416 will be bringing back the World Thinking Day celebration in 2022; however, it will be a little different than in past years. For starters, we will be holding our event outside in May. There will be lots of learning and fun memories. We hope you will join us! Your leaders will be in contact with you soon to begin the planning process! Be sure to watch for an update later this spring with event details!
In the meantime, Troop Leaders should check out the World Thinking Day activity guides and watch to a detailed WTD email:
