World Thinking Day is celebrated every year on 22 February by all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
It is a day when they think about their “sisters” and “brothers” all around the globe.
Guides and Girl Scouts use this as an opportunity to study and appreciate other countries and cultures and increase awareness of global concerns.
Donations are collected for the Thinking Day Fund which supports projects to help Girl Guides and Scouts around the world.
This date was chosen as it is the birthday of Scouting and Guiding founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell.
The theme for 2020 World Thinking Day is “Living Threads”.
The name of the day was changed to ‘World Thinking Day’ at the 30th world conference in Dublin in 1999.
