Negotiators at Rio+20 awarded Girl Guide badge

19 June 2012, Rio de Janeiro – The first time a Girl Guide is awarded a Girl Guide badge is a time of joy and sense of achievement. It is therefore with great pride that the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) will award the Brazilian Girl Guide badge ‘Citizenship Specialist’ to the Education, Health and Gender group representatives from Switzerland, the European Union, United States of America, Australia, Norway and the G77 for their support in reintroducing ‘non-formal education’ into the draft outcome document.
