World Thinking Day 2018: Impact

A message from our Chief Guide Amanda and our International Commissioner Charlotte

'World Thinking Day on 22 February is an important day in our calendar. It's a day when everyone in guiding across the world explores and celebrates how we’re all part of a bigger movement, our World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS).

The theme for 2018 was Impact - a celebration of how guiding has changed your life, your communities and beyond.

Whether it’s meeting members of guiding all over the world, or celebrating the impact our units have in their local communities, it’s amazing to think about the difference Girlguiding makes to all of our lives.

We loved reading your stories of the impact of guiding on your life, which you shared on social media with #WTD2018. Whether that was educating your girls on body confidence, getting involved in social action, or taking a once in a lifetime trip abroad.

We’re so thrilled to be able to share World Thinking Day with you and the millions of guiding members across the world. Check back here for ways you can get involved in 2019.'

It was great to see so many of you celebrating World Thinking Day 2018 with your units and sharing your own stories of the impact of guiding. Here’s a few of our favourite photos that were sent to us by members.
