GSMH Service Unit 738 - Columbia, MO

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.

World Thinking Day

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 Nations  Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which aim to improve the lives of the world's poorest people. The theme of World Thinking Day 2016 is "Connect!" On this day, let's explore and celebrate meaningful connections that make our lives better, whether to the people closest to us, to a place we care about, or to a Girl Guide or Girl Scout Friend on the other side of the world.
