Celebrated since 1926, World Thinking Day is a day of international friendship, speaking out on issues that affect girls and young women, and fundraising for 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world.
In 2017, we would like to grow the World Thinking Day celebrations, and invite more girls and young women around the world to experience what it means to be part of the Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting Movement! The World Thinking Day Challenge for 2017 will be a journey of growth, supporting Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting groups as we introduce our Movement to new members.
Participate in the World Thinking Day Challenge 2017 and #LetsGrow!
Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world along with new potential members will go on a treasure hunt to find the “seeds of change”. These seeds are a symbol of all efforts to grow our Movement, so more girls and young women have the opportunity to feel empowered to discover their full potentials.
