Walk the World
Join WAGGGS and your sisters throughout the Movement this World Thinking Day for an exciting fundraising activity.
Organise a walk with your troop or unit where you can get creative thinking about ways to bring peace to the environment. You can get your friends, family and people in your life to donate money for the steps you take, raising money as you walk for the World Thinking Day Fund.
This challenge will start on World Thinking Day, February 22, 2023, and will conclude on Earth Day, April 22, 2023. That’s exactly 2 months to reach your goal. With 8.9 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts working together, let’s see how many times we can circle the globe! Each step we take together is a step towards protecting our planet and a peaceful future.

The theme for World Thinking Day 2023 is Our World, Our Peaceful Future.
On International Day of the Girl 2020, we asked Girl Guides and Girl Scouts under 18 from 100 countries what issues they were most concerned about and what they wanted to change about the world. From this data, we learnt that the number one worry is the environment. And so, the World Thinking Day theme from 2022-2024 will be Our World, Our Future.
In 2022 we produced the Our World, Our Equal Future, activity pack, and are now halfway through our three-year journey for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to become environmentally conscious leaders.
The 2023 Our World, Our Peaceful Future activity pack explores what we can learn from the environment and how we can work with nature to create a more peaceful and secure future for girls everywhere. We explore topics of stewardship, harmony and the role the environment plays in peace and security.
We want you to be part of this!
