Each year on and around Feb. 22, Girl Scouts participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world. World Thinking Day is part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts Global Action theme based on the United Nations’ Millennium Development Goals, which aim to improve the lives of the world’s poorest people. The theme for World Thinking Day 2015 was "girls worldwide say ‘we can create peace through partnerships."
World Thinking Day gives girls a chance to celebrate international friendships and is a reminder to girls that they are part of a global community. Girl Scout troops and service units across southern Illinois held World Thinking Day events.
