World Thinking Day
World Thinking Day has been celebrated since 1926 on 22nd February by all Girl Guides and Girl Scouts; a day for focusing on our Guiding Promise and international friendship.
February 22nd was chosen as it was the birthday of Scouting and Guiding founder Lord Robert Baden-Powell and his wife Lady Olave Baden-Powell who was World Chief Guide. On Sunday 21st February girls and young women from across the city, together with our Scouting friends raised our flags at the Birmingham Council House in a joint celebration of World Thinking Day and Founders Day. Many of our members wore their uniform to school or work today to ‘shout out’ about our organisations”
