World Thinking Day

World Thinking Day 2021: Peacebuilding

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 2021 is Peacebuilding. Peacebuilding is at the heart of Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting and is as vital and relevant today as for the last 100 years.

How can I celebrate?

We’re inviting you to join the guiding community virtually to celebrate World Thinking Day and #PassThePromise.

We know it’s tough not being able to be with each other in person, but we can still mark the day together.

Join us on social media on World Thinking Day when we’d like you to share a photo or video of you making your promise. You can then pass it on by nominating a guiding friend to do the same. Don’t forget to include #PassThePromise

And look out for a special video from Chief Guide Amanda Medler kicking things off on our members’ Facebook page.
