Happy World Thinking Day 2022

22 February 2022

World Thinking Day is the International Day of Friendship. February 22 marks a day for celebrating all the incredible things which characterise the Guiding experience: a chance to learn, discover and adventure all while making amazing friends and even more incredible memories.  

Girl Guides have been celebrating World Thinking Day for 96 years. It’s a day dedicated to one cause but over its many years of celebration, has sparked advocacy for incredible amounts of change.  

While celebrating friendship, the day also offers girls and young women a chance to advocate for the issues they care most about. Over the years, WTD has been the catalyst for significant amounts of change toward more equality and inclusion, diverse leadership, and so much more.  

This year, WTD asks us to reflect on Our World, Our Equal Future. This is a chance to understand how girls and young women are disproportionately affected by environmental issues and explore how we could speak out and take action for a better world.  

You can view the WAGGGs activity pack here . This contains heaps of valuable programming ideas to help coordinate discussion and discovery of the connection between the environment and gender equality.  

Donations to the World Thinking Day Fund

  Any funds raised for World Thinking Day will go toward projects that girls and young women can participate in across the globe. Now more than ever, the World Thinking Day Fund is incredibly valuable for those who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the risks and vulnerabilities this has exposed among girls and young women.
