Growing Locally to Globally the Girl Scout Way


Blog_2019_Global-Action-Days

It’s a big world. But with advances in technology, our world is getting smaller, and more immediate, making global awareness more important than ever. Whether you travel the globe or stay close to home, you are a citizen of the world and are impacted by global issues every day.

Every Girl Scout is a part of a special group of girls that stretches not just across the United States, but around the world. This year, Nebraska Girl Scouts are celebrating that sisterhood of Girl Scouting and participating in programs that relate to global issues affecting women and girls.

If you are enjoying this year’s Local to Global program theme, here are more resources to explore:

Join us for our Global Webinar at 7 p.m. on March 24 to discover more about Girl Scouts’ global sisterhood, explore international issues, and be inspired to take action locally and globally. Participate at home or watch with your troop or service unit! This webinar is ideal for co-leaders of all age levels, and girls who are Juniors and up.

Learn about the Girl Scout Global Action award, an exciting way to address world concerns highlighted in the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

Earn the new Global Action Day Patch designed to engage you and your troop in the Global Days of Action, along with millions of other Girl Scouts and girl advocates.

Connect with the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), the largest voluntary movement dedicate d to girls and young women in the world. It represents 10 million girls and young women from 150 countries. Explore the WAGGGS website, and follow them on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.  

Plan a trip to a WAGGGS World Center, in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Mexico, India, or Africa. These are comfortable, safe places for Girl Scouts and their families to stay at or visit, including during seminars, training sessions, or international events.
