January 2014 - World Thinking Day 2014

With 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from 145 countries across the world, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) is the largest voluntary Movement dedicated to girls and young women in the world.

Our mission is: "
To enable girls and young women to develop their fullest potential as responsible citizens of the world".

The best way to achieve potential is through learning in every possible way.  That's why this year's World Thinking Day theme is so important to WAGGGS.  Education is at the heart of our work.  We deliver a well-established, unique values-based approach to non-formal learning that is international and intergenerational.

Although school isn't the only place you learn, it's one of the most important.  The skills you learn at school are the foundations for your future.  Alongside school, non formal education, provided by organizations such as Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting, offers the opportunity for children and young people to develop confidence, leadership and skills for life and work.

This World Thinking Day 2014 activity pack includes information and activities to help members learn about issues such as access to quality education, lifelong learning and how we learn as Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

World Thinking Day is a chance for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to celebrate the international friendship they find in our movement; to raise money to help grow and share the Movement with more girls and young women around the world, and to join together to take action on issues affecting the world.

"Together we can change our world!"
