👋 Happy International Youth Day everyone! The theme this year is ‘Intergenerational Solidarity: Creating a World for All Ages’. We need to keep empowering girls to realise their voice matters and they can make positive change. Here at Girlguiding Scotland we're proud to offer great opportunities for young people to express their opinions, take action and create a more sustainable future.

♻️ The 1st Peebles Brownies took on the #Take2in2022 – they organised a local litter pick up and planted lots of flowers. Here's what their leader Linda had to say: "It's very important to encourage girls to use their voice and help them realise they have the power to make change! That's why it was so great to watch them take on the #Take2in2022 challenge – it motivated them to be actively involved in securing a better future for their planet."
