World Thinking Day 2021
Welcome to the World Thinking Day 2021 activity pack: Stand Together for Peace. We hope you will use this pack to celebrate World Thinking Day and stand together with over ten million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world to call for and create peace; in our lives and in the world.
Peacebuilding is at the heart of Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting and is as vital and relevant today as for the last 100 years. By completing the steps in this activity pack, Girl Guides will: Stand Strong, Stand Up and Stand Together for peacebuilding.
What is Peacebuilding?
Peace is not just the absence of war, it means dignity, safety, and well-being for all.
How peace is defined is different for everyone and it can range from being happy in ourselves and seeing the smiling faces of our loved ones, to conflict resolution within a community and ending violence and harmful practices around the world.
Peacebuilding is about dealing with the reasons why people fight and supporting people to manage their differences and conflicts in a non-violent way. It is very important to develop positive, personal and group relationships across different races, beliefs, cultures and classes. Understanding why people are different and why this is valuable and important helps us all to live in harmony.
