History of World Thinking Day

The Girl Scouts of the USA, the WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts), and other WAGGGS associate institutions have been observing World Thinking Day since 1926.

It is a day to honor being part of the various worldwide sisterhood. The history of the day is a captivating story.

In 1926, representatives from all over the world met at Camp Edith Macy — now known as the Edith Macy Conference Center in New York for the fourth World Conference and chose to begin a day for guides and girl scouts.

They set the mutual birthday of Lord Baden-Powell, the originator of the guide and scout movement, and his wifey Olave as the Thinking Day. After that, in 1932, a Belgian representative expressed that girls could raise funds for world thinking Day and offer their appreciation.

Approving this request, Lord Baden-Powell sent a letter to every guide and girl scouts globally requesting them to contribute a penny as it was sufficient for a loaf of bread in those days.

In 1999, at the Dubai Conference, Thinking Day was modified to ‘World Thinking Day.’ Presently, this has developed into a vast worldwide event that inspires members of the movement to consider more significant problems.
