Make an impact this World Thinking Day!

World Thinking Day is fast-approaching and there are lots of ways for you and your girls to join in the celebration!

How will you make a difference?

World Thinking Day celebrates the 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world. This year the theme is impact and we want to find out how you’ll make a difference in 2018 so download our frame, write down your impact pledge, pop it in and then snap a photo!

Your pledge can be anything you want – from making a new friend from another part of the world to growing wildlife-friendly plants in your garden.

Once you’ve written your impact pledge take a photo with your frame and share it with us on on Twitter using #WTD2018 and #ThisIsImpact. Check out our photo guidelines to get some top tips for taking a perfect picture.

Make an impact!

This World Thinking Day the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts is calling on members around the world to celebrate the impact WAGGGS – the largest voluntary movement dedicated to girls and young women in the world – has on the lives of members and their communities.

The Impact Activity Pack, which has been created by WAGGGS to celebrate World Thinking Day, is packed with fun ideas and activities to help your unit understand the power they have to bring positive changes.

Send a message!

World Thinking Day is an ideal time to make connections with other Girlguiding members near and far. Why not have your unit write and decorate World Thinking Day messages or cards?

You could check with your county to see if there are any links with Girl Guides or Girls Scouts group in other places or send a card to one of the four WAGGGS World Centres.

Or keep it closer to home and have your girls write to a local unit – perhaps your Guides could write to their nearest Brownie unit and let them know what they can look forward to when they move up?

Go Global!

If your unit is inspired to keep learning about Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world check out our World Thinking Day Pinterest board for more ideas and activities.
