Each year on World Thinking Day, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 150 other countries. This engaging event celebrates international friendships, but is also a reminder that Girl Scouts are part of a global community.
The World Thinking Day activities are designed to complement the the Girl Scout Leadership Experience with an enhanced global focus. One of the specific benefits of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is it encourages girls to see the value of diversity in a multicultural world. Girls learn to think and act in a way that promotes an inclusive environment, respecting and valuing diverse backgrounds, viewpoints, and life experiences.
The theme for World Thinking Day 2014 was "education opens doors for all girls and boys."
GSACPC celebrated World Thinking Day at Margaret T. Hance Park in March. More than 750 Girl Scouts, their families and friends gathered to celebrate diversity and encourage inclusiveness in our multicultural world. Check out photos from the event here!
