World Thinking Day 2023


In 2023, we continue the second year of our three-year journey for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to become environmentally conscious leaders with the theme ”Our World, Our Peaceful Future”.


On International Day of the Girl 2020, we asked Girl Guides and Girl Scouts under 18 from 100 countries what issues they were most concerned about and what they wanted to change about the world. From this data, we learned that the number one worry is the environment and so the World Thinking Day theme from 2022-2024 will be Our World, Our Future.


Each year we are building on this environmental theme and exploring the links between the environment and other global concerns. This year we are considering how we can learn from and work with nature to create a more peaceful and secure future for girls everywhere.
