On February 22, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides across 150 countries
Thinking Day—that’s one big celebration! But don’t think the
celebration is limited to February 22! You can celebrate all year long!
The World Association of Girl
Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), along with Girl Scouts of the
USA and the other WAGGGS member organizations, have celebrated World
Thinking Day since 1926. That’s when delegates from around the globe
met at Camp Edith Macy—now called Edith Macy Conference Center—in New
York and agreed that February 22 would now be known as a special day
for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts worldwide.
Observed by 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts worldwide, World
Thinking Day has a different theme each year. In 2022, the theme is
“Our World: Our Equal Future: The Environment and Gender Equality.” To
earn your World Thinking Day Award, you’ll explore how girls and women
are disproportionately affected by climate change and participate in
the Girl Scout Tree Promise. Check out the activity guides below to
get involved and learn about how you can make a difference in the world.
