World Thinking Day
Every year on February 22, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides across 150 countries come together to celebrate World Thinking Day. Like many awesome things, it first happened at camp—Camp Edith Macy in New York, to be exact. That’s where delegates from around the globe gathered in 1926 and agreed to create a special day to recognize and honor our worldwide sisterhood of Girl Scouts and Girl Guides.
Since then, World Thinking Day has become a way to raise awareness of issues that impact girls and young women across the globe. It also serves as an opportunity for girls to connect with others in communities near and far by doing the same activities around a shared theme. The theme for World Thinking Day 2020 is “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.”
