Celebrated since 1926, World Thinking Day is a day of international friendship. It is an opportunity to speak out on issues that affect young women and fundraise for 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 150 countries.
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!
