Call me square, but I always nod towards Girl Guides World Thinking Day on 22nd February. It’s a day of friendship, advocacy and fundraising for 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world. Nowadays the Guide Movement calls itself a feminist organisation, and I can see in my teenage years how being a Girl Guide shaped my feminism, courage and internationalism.
On 22 February each year, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world celebrate World Thinking Day by:
- Learning about their international sisters in designated focus countries for the year
- Doing fun and educational activities based around an advocacy theme for the year
- Fundraising for the World Thinking Day Fund
- Earning the World Thinking Day badge
