World Thinking Day 2023 – Our planet, our peaceful future

World Thinking Day gives women a platform to express their ideas, and views, engage in discussion about the matter that concerns them and provide solutions on a global scale.

The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) celebrates World Thinking Day on February 22 every year. This day celebrates sisterhood, solidarity, and women entrepreneurs. The goal of this day is to encourage female scout bonds with one another.

The major aim of this day is to give all women and girls a platform where they can freely express their ideas, engage in discussion about topics concerning them, and offer solutions on the global stage. All the young ladies get the chance to spread their message internationally on a larger stage. One of the most important messages that girl scouts and girl guides do is to raise money for the progress of young girls all over the world.


The theme of World Thinking Day 2023 is ‘our planet and our peaceful future’. The idea is to emphasize creating a safer place for girls by working together with nature. 


The necessity for World Thinking Day was raised back in 1926 at the fourth female scout international conference. The conference agreed on dedicating February 22 as Thinking Day. Lord Baden-Powell, who founded the Boy Scouts of America, and his wife Lady Olave Baden-Powell, who served as the organization’s first global head guide, were both born on February 22.

Six years later, during the 7th World Conference in Bucze, Poland in 1932, delegates highlighted that presents are typically given on birthdays; thus girls may convey their gratitude by giving presents to the International Movement by donating on Thinking Day.

This fundraising component continues to be a significant source of income for WAGGGS today. Thinking Day was renamed World Thinking Day in 1999 by participants from all around the world during the 30th World Conference in Dublin, Ireland.
