Girl Scout Traditions: World Thinking Day
Girl Scouts are part of a global sisterhood stretching around our planet like a giant sparkling friendship bracelet. And we celebrate that sisterhood every February 22 with Girl Scouts and Girl Guides from 146 different countries at World Thinking Day (WTD)!
Thinking Day is a day of international friendship for 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world. Each year the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) chooses a theme and in 2016 that theme is CONNECT. Our girls will be exploring how they connect with themselves, their friends, their community, and other girls around the globe. They can explore global issues that affect girls, delve deep into the history of our movement, discover other cultures, and take action to make a difference for girls.
For 2016, the World Thinking Challenge is to:
- Make four special connections and collect four puzzle pieces.
- Girls connect with themselves, connect with friends, connect with WAGGGS, and connect with the world.
- Put together their puzzle, and share their connections with the world.
- Girls will put it all together and share their story with 10 million girls around the world through #connect10million.
