Celebrate World Thinking Day at Morningside Elementary

Atlanta –- It takes one day, 300 Girl Scouts from Atlanta and over ten million girls around the world. These three special ingredients are the ones that make World Thinking Day, a Girl Scout holiday, so exciting and meaningful for young women everywhere.

On Sunday February 27th, Girl Scout Troop 21340 will host a gathering of metro Atlanta Girl Scouts to celebrate this special event, designed to recognize Girl Scouts of the USA as part of an international movement. World Thinking Day is set aside each year by the Girl Scouts to think and learn about other countries.

The learning is done through exhibits created by each participating troop. The exhibits and displays highlight countries and their favorite customs, games, sports, holidays and food. In total, 19 countries will be featured including Greece, Haiti, Kenya, Canada and Japan, to name a few.

The celebration is scheduled for 2:30 pm until 4 pm, Sunday, February 27th, 2008 in the gymnasium of Morningside Elementary School at 1053 East Rock Springs Road.

Girls and women of all ages in many countries do not have the same opportunities as men. They do not have the same access to education as boys and men. Women are underrepresented in the world’s governments and in the workforce, and earn far less than men.

The World Thinking Day theme for 2011 is girls worldwide say “empowering girls will change our world.” Raising awareness about this goal will help empower girls and young women to take a stand against inequality.
