Environmental problems become exacerbated by human conflict, like war or invasions. In turn, many conflicts have arisen as a direct result of environmental crises—water scarcity, for example. There is a clear link between the environment, peace, and security.
That’s why the 2023 World Thinking Day theme is: “Our world, our peaceful future: The environment, peace, and security.”
This World Thinking Day, join us as we explore the different ways we can tackle environmental issues and thus help prevent and reduce conflict to build lasting peace worldwide.
Let's take the opportunity to:
• Celebrate our global sisterhood and continue the legacy of environmental action with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts worldwide.
• Take the Girl Scout Tree Promise and join us in the fight against climate change by protecting and honoring trees in your community.
Since 1926, Girl Guides and Girl Scouts around the globe have celebrated World Thinking Day on February 22. It’s a special day of international friendship when we can focus on taking action to make the world a better place.
Happy World Thinking Day!
