Mrs. Laura Browne, Chief Commissioner of the local Association shared that “World Thinking Day is celebrated on the 22nd of February every year”. She further highlighted that “This year’s theme was
“A result of data collection by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
On International Day of the Girl 2020, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts asked Girl Guides and Girl Scouts under 18 years from 100 countries what issues they were most concerned about and what they wanted to change about the world. From this data, the number one worry is the environment. And so, the World Thinking Day theme from 2022-2024 will be Our World, Our Future for Girl Guides, and Girl Scouts to become environmentally conscious leaders”.
In recognition of World Thinking Day, Bim Bims, Brownie Guides, Girl Guides, Ranger Guides, Young Leaders, AND Guiders wore their uniforms today to mark the special occasion.
