World Thinking Day is Feb. 22, 2016


Each year on February 22, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries. It is a special day in the Girl Scout year when we remember we are part of a worldwide movement. World Thinking day is part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts’ Global Action Theme. The Global Action Theme is based on the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which aim to improve the lives of the world’s poorest people. The theme of World Thinking Day 2016 is “Connect!”

On this day, Girl Scouts explore and celebrate meaningful connections that make our lives better, whether to the people closest to them, to a place they care about, or to a Girl Guide or Girl Scout friend on the other side of the world. A Thinking Day Patch is available from GSSI Council Shops.
