World Thinking Day

World Thinking Day is an international holiday that brings together many aspects of human life: friendship, support, mutual understanding, equality and more. It originally touched on girls and women in our society and was created by WAGGGS, but has a broader meaning today. It is celebrated annually on February 22.


The history of World Thinking Day dates back to 1926, when it was conceived as a holiday whose purpose was to support global sisterhood. It was created by the joint efforts of the Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, who were members of a single association, WAGGGS.

The decision to create the holiday was made at Edith Macy’s New York camp. Representatives of the association chose as their date of celebration the birthday of Lord Baden-Paul and his wife, thanks to whom the movement was founded.

In 1999, at the Dubai Conference, the holiday was given international status. Every year there are various meetings, conferences, and other events devoted to global issues.

Interesting facts

  • Today, boys are interested in scouting as well as girls. Scouts go camping, gain the necessary practical knowledge and skills, socialize in the community, and improve their health through outdoor games.
  • In recent years, conferences have raised environmental conservation and gender equality issues more frequently. They are fundamental to creating an equal future for everyone.
