International Day of the Girl 2017
In 2012, the United Nations declared 11 October as the annual International Day of the Girl (IDG). It's a day to promote girls' human rights and tackle gender inequality, discrimination and the abuse suffered by girls around the world. WAGGGS has been part of IDG from the beginning, choosing a theme and providing tools to support WAGGGS Members to celebrate IDG, raise awareness about issues affecting girls, and increase the profile of the work our Movement does to empower girls in 146 countries around the world.
United Nations - Sustainable Development Goals: Quality Education
The 17 new Global Goals were agreed by global leaders at the United Nations in 2015 to shape the future of the world, and bring countries together to continue the work started by the Millennium Development Goals. This year's focus is Global Goal 4: "Access to Education – to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all". A 90 minute programme created for WAGGGS members of all ages to discover more about the Global Goals, and build up your team to take action on the Goals you're passionate about.
