This year we are celebrating the history of World Thinking Day. The 22nd February 2024 is the 135th anniversary of the birth of Olave Baden-Powell and the 166th anniversary of her husband Robert Baden-Powell. We are also celebrating Guiding and Girl Scouting around the world. We have followed the imaginary lines of Longitude and Latitude from our region Headquarters and found out about the girls in these places. Our activities will give an insight into the things they enjoy doing and their daily lives.
This booking is for units, districts & divisions only. Parents and families will need to use the Family booking option.
We have prepared this event to be as flexible as possible. You can take part as a unit, district, or division meeting, either in person or virtually, or you and your girls can take part as individuals with their parents/carers.
We have provided a selection of activities from each of the WAGGGS Regions. We suggest that you choose a variety of different activities to create your own exclusive event for either a few hours, over the whole weekend, or during unit meetings in the weeks leading up to World Thinking Day. If you think your young members might enjoy an activity from another Section, they’re more than welcome to try, but younger members may need additional support.
We have provided full instructions and a list of what you will need for each activity. Any instruction sheets or video links are only for those who have signed up and paid to attend the event. We ask that you please do not share these outside of your local team, or with parents who have not registered their daughter to take part.
If you have questions during the weekend of the event, these can be posted on the closed Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/wtd2024, or emailed to
The cost of £1.50per unit/district/division includes 1 event badge that will be posted to you, the activity pack and a donation to WAGGGS. Extra badges are available to buy from the online shop https://www.girlguidingsouthwest.co.uk/component/hikashop/product/wtd-2024-guide-your-way-around-the-world
