World Thinking Day
World Thinking Day is a day of friendship, advocacy and fundraising for 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world.
Girl Guides and Girl Scouts have been celebrating World Thinking Day since 1926 and it has been an important fundraising day since 1932.
On 22 February each year, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world celebrate World Thinking Day by:
- Doing fun and educational activities based around an advocacy theme for the year
- Fundraising for the World Thinking Day Fund
- Earning the World Thinking Day badge
In 2018 the theme and activity pack is designed to fit with the WAGGGS strategy “Understand the power you have to bring positive change.” This completes the triennium theme Connect-Grow-Impact by celebrating the Impact that the Movement has on the lives of our members and their communities.
To support Guiding communities across the world celebrate World Thinking Day, WAGGGS provide information, education resources and support materials on their website here.
The World Thinking Day activity pack – including how to earn your Thinking Day badge and information about the Thinking Day Fund – is available now and can be found on the WAGGGS website here or can be downloaded as a pdf here.
In Australia, units across our country take this resource and use it to understand the meaning of the key themes, what it means to them and how they can take action and advocate for the issue in their local community.
Girl Guides Australia is keen to hear the stories and news on what activities our Girl Guides and units will be doing on the day – and lead up to this great Guiding day. Share your stories on our Facebook page and via our twitter @girlguidesaust.
