Every year, World Thinking Day has a different theme based on an issue that affects girls and young women around the world.

The themes offer a focus point for World Thinking Day activities and provide an opportunity for Girl Guides and Girl Scouts to learn about and take action on issues that are likely to matter to them.

For each theme there is a publication with information and activities which both girls and leaders can enjoy.
