World Thinking Day 2025 - 2028

100 Years of WAGGGS & World Thinking Day

As we prepare for the centenary of World Thinking Day (2026) and centenary of WAGGGS (2028), World Thinking Day is taking a new direction. Over the next four years we will celebrate our Movement through broad themes which explore our history, symbolism, people and future.

The official titles and content will be created by a volunteer writers pool, so there may be small changes if required. These themes were created following a consultation with WAGGGS staff, global volunteers and local leaders who participated in the 2024 WTD celebrations worldwide.

In line with Girl Guide and Girl Scout methodology, we are taking a girl-centered and volunteer-led approach to develop all the WTD activity packs. It is a great opportunity to develop your skills in content creation and work with an international team.

If you or your Member Organisation are interested in celebrating World Thinking Day or volunteering as part of the World Thinking Day writing team, please email
