World Thinking Day

World Thinking Day 2024: Our World, Our Peaceful Future

Every year on 22 February, we celebrate World Thinking Day. 

We’re part of a bigger movement - the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) - and World Thinking Day is a chance for us to connect with 10 million Girl Guides and Scouts across the globe. And to shout about the amazing things we do.

The theme for 2024 is Our World, Our Peaceful Future. On International Day of the Girl 2020, WAGGGS asked Girl Guides and Girl Scouts under 18 from 100 countries what issues they were most concerned about and found out that their number one worry is the environment. 

So, this year’s World Thinking Day is the final part of a 3-year journey for members to become environmentally aware leaders. World Thinking Day in 2022, 2023 and 2024 have a focus on the environment.
