As we enter into February, GSHPA is getting excited for World Thinking Day! Observed by 10 million Girl Scouts and Girl Guides across 150 countries annually, World Thinking Day is a BIG DEAL! Since 1926, Girl Scouts of the USA, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGS), and other organizations have been celebrating World Thinking Day on February 22nd.
World Thinking Day is a day of international friendship and an opportunity to speak out on issues impacting girls and women. 2021’s theme celebrates what it means to be a peacebuilder and creating peace in the world around you! Peacebuilding is at the heart of Girl Scouting and is as important and relevant today as for the last 100 years.
In order to help you celebrate World Thinking Day safely this year, GSHPA will be hosting a virtual celebration on February 20th from 1-3pm. Our virtual celebration features 3 different peacebuilding activities geared for different ages. Girl Scouts participate in the activity for their age group along with others if they would like.
