Celebrate World Thinking Day with GSCO
Take the lead on February 22, 2019 to celebrate World Thinking Day with Girl Scouts and Girl Guides from 150 countries! (That’s one big celebration!)
Promoted by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS for short) along with Girl Scouts across the USA, World Thinking Day originated in 1926. That’s when delegates from around the globe met at Camp Edith Macy—now called Edith Macy Conference Center—in New York State and agreed that February 22 would henceforth be known as a special day for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts worldwide.
Every year since, World Thinking Day has called for Girl Scouts and Girl Guides to join together and take part in activities that promote changing the world for the better. This year’s World Thinking Day theme is Leadership; check out our activity guides to explore many different ways girls can be leaders and create the change they want to see in the world—and celebrate being part of the global sisterhood that is Girl Scouts and Girl Guides!
The GSCO Global Action Committee also wants to hear from you (VSS, Service Unit Managers, troop leaders, etc.) about the exciting plans you’ve been working on for World Thinking Day. If you are planning a World Thinking Day celebration, please fill out the form linked HERE so the Global Action Committee can compile data and help you make your celebration the best it can be!
