Thinking Day

Every year on February 22, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts across the globe celebrate World Thinking Day. It’s a day of international friendship and is an opportunity to speak out on issues that affect girls and young women, celebrate the founding of Girl Guides, and be connected to the 10 million members around the world who are part of the Guiding movement.

Each year, World Thinking Day has a different theme based on an issue that affects girls and young women around the world. The themes offer a focus point for World Thinking Day activities and provide an opportunity for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to learn about and take action on issues that are likely to matter to them. To find out more about World Thinking Day, please visit the WAGGGS website.

Guiding Lights Across Newfoundland and Labrador

Again this year, we’re joining other provinces across Canada for the Guiding Lights campaign. We’ve asked landmarks and monuments across Newfoundland and Labrador to light up in blue on February 22 to celebrate girl empowerment.  

Shine your Guiding light with us! Light candles, make lanterns and find other ways to shine your own Guiding lights from your homes, in your meeting locations, and around your neighbourhoods. Take a picture and share it with us on Facebook and Instagram using hashtag #ShineYourGuidingLight.  

As well, members are encouraged to wear Guiding attire on February 22! Don’t forget to snap a picture and tag us on @GGCNL social media channels using the hashtag #ThinkingDayNL23.
