You may have heard by now: as a Girl Scout you are a part of an international sisterhood. That’s right! Girl Scouts USA is part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), an organization spanning over 150 countries!
Every year, WAGGGS and Girl Scouts celebrates World Thinking Day, a day specifically designed to learn about the food, music, and culture from parts of the world we aren’t familiar with. It is a day of international friendship and an opportunity for Girl Scouts in the United States to show solidarity with our sisters all around the globe.
Read on to find out how Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana (GSGCNWI) are celebrating this year!

The World Is Round, It Has No End…
…that’s how long I’d like to be your international friend!
World Thinking Day is more than just an awesome global party– it is a chance to connect with our sisters across the world, learn about diverse cultures and traditions, and start taking action and speaking out on issues that matter to all our Girl Guiding and Scouting sisters.
