World Thinking Day 2019

Every year, World Thinking Day has a different theme that Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world can learn about and take action on.


World Thinking Day 2019 is dedicated to the group of girls who took the lead in 1909 and asked Lord Baden-Powell to create ‘something for the girls’.

Over the next three years, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts will follow a journey through our World Thinking Day themes.


2019: Leadership

Guides and Girl Scouts are leaders. In 2019, learn the different ways to be a leader and develop the power to bring the change you want to see in the world.


2020: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

It's important that Guiding and Scouting is a safe and inclusive space for all to take part. In 2020, understand the concepts of diversity, equity and inclusion, and what that means for your community. 


2021: Peacebuilding

Use the knowledge and experiences you've gained in World Thinking Day 2019 and 2020 activities to take action and change your world. Choose to build peace: be a leader and create environments that include everyone.
