Each year, on February 22, girls participate in activities and projects with global themes to honor their sister Girl Scouts and Girl Guides in other countries. World Thinking Day is part of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts Global Action Theme (GAT) based on the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals (MSGs), which aim to improve the lives of the world’s poorest people. The overall theme for World Thinking Day 2013 is 'Together We Can Save Children’s Lives.' This year’s theme is based on the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goal #4 focused on reducing child mortality rates around the globe. World Thinking Day gives girls a chance to celebrate international friendships and is a reminder that the Girl Scouts of Western New York (GSWNY) is part of a global community — one of 145 countries with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
