#GirlsSaveTheWorld COP26 competition

Calling all budding inventors – let’s save the planet!


To celebrate COP26 kicking off in Glasgow (from 31 Oct–12 Nov 2021) we want you to come up with an invention that helps tackle climate change! From a robot that sucks up all the rubbish in the ocean to a cool car that can runs on carrot juice, let your imagination run wild because it’s time for girls to save the world.

How to take part

Are you ready to become the next sensation in the world of sustainability? You can either draw up your invention on an A4 piece of scrap paper or create a model of your design using whatever you can find lying around the house, such as old rolled up newspapers and empty plastic bottles. Take part with your unit or at home – the choice is yours!

Once you’re done, all you have to do is take a picture of your creations and share it on social media with us @GirlguidingScot on Twitter or Facebook using #GirlsSaveTheWorld, or simply email it to us by midnight on Thursday 11 November. Please include the entrants full name, membership number and the name of their unit.

Who can take part?

This is open to girls from Rainbows to Rangers and our Girlguiding Scotland #COP26 delegates will pick 3 winners, one Rainbow, one Brownie and one Guide on 12 November. All winners will receive an exciting mystery prize so all the more reason to enter!
