Each year on February 22, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in other countries. It is a special day in the Girl Scout year when we remember we are part of a worldwide movement.

World Thinking Day is part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts Global Action Theme, based on the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which aim to improve the lives of the world’s poorest people. The theme for World Thinking Day 2013 is girls worldwide say, “together we can save children’s lives,” focused on reducing child mortality rates around the globe.
