WTD Ontario Council

World Thinking Day 2024

On February 22, join Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from 150 countries to celebrate World Thinking Day (WTD) 2024. This year’s WAGGGS theme is Our World, Our Thriving Future. This year is the final year of a three-year journey for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to become environmentally conscious leaders.

By completing the steps in the Our World, Our Peaceful Future activity pack, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the world will continue to follow Miku, a young girl who embarks on a quest to find peace and balance within her world. The activity pack will take you on a journey exploring crucial global issues through the lens of environmental sustainability, gender equality, peace and poverty.  Together, we can make a positive impact on our world and ensure that all girls thrive.

This Thinking Day we will be shining a Guiding Light across Ontario and Nunavut. Celebrate in your community as we shine our Guiding lights in support of girl empowerment.

Local landmarks across Ontario and Nunavut (stadiums, bridges, structures and buildings, etc.) will help us celebrate by lighting up in Guiding blue on the evening of February 22.

We invite Guiding members and other supporters to safely light candles, make lanterns and shine Guiding lights from homes or outdoor space. Consider doing some crafting with your unit! You could decorate glass jar lanterns, make luminary lanterns out of paper bags or set up your own light displays in your windows or yards.

See if there's a monument near you to admire on February 22! You are invited to #ShineYourGuidingLight and safely light up your home by making lanterns and finding other ways to shine your own Guiding lights.

New for 2024! Ontario Council has created a new Guiding Lights Across Ontario and Nunavut crest in both English and French, just in time for World Thinking Day.
