Walk the World Challenge

We all want to protect a peaceful planet. You can do this, by joining with Miku and your sisters throughout the Movement to collectively walk around the world and share stories like Miku’s along the way.

Organise a walk with your troop or unit where you can get creative thinking about ways to bring peace to the environment. You can get your friends, family and people in your life to donate money for the steps you take, raising money as you walk for the World Thinking Day Fund.

This challenge will start on World Thinking Day, February 22, 2023, and will conclude on Earth Day, April 22, 2023. That’s exactly 2 months to reach your goal. With 10 million Girl Guides and Girl Scouts working together, let’s see how many times we can circle the globe! Each step we take together is a step towards protecting our planet and a peaceful future. 

There will be an online form to submit your steps/km/miles as a unit or troop and it will take Miku further along her journey round the world. You can also donate any funds you collect through the challenge. 

This challenge will launch in February so be sure to revisit this page then, where you will find all the details you need to participate and complete the World Thinking Day activity pack.
