World Thinking Day
About SU72's Annual Event
World Thinking Day is a day of international friendship and has been celebrated annually on February 22nd, since 1926. It is a day when Girl Scouts around the world think about their sister Girl Scouts, the meaning of Girl Scouts/Guiding, and our Global impact. It is observed by 10 million Girl Scouts and Girl Guides worldwide.
A theme that focuses on an important international issue is selected each year by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS). The WAGGGS creates badge activities relating to an annual theme that girls can do to earn the official annual World Thinking Day patch.
Many Girl Scout sisters volunteer to assist in running the annual event. Girl volunteer roles include running badge activity sessions, being the master of ceremonies to facilitating the event, and assisting with younger girls.
