Throughout the year, Girl Scouts observe international days of action
that celebrate women and girls, and address the different challenges
we all face around the world. By earning the Global Action Days Patch,
you celebrate the achievements of women and girls, and learn about the
issues that exist and how they can help.

To help you earn your patch, Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW
Missouri will be sharing ideas and Community Partner events that
connect with three of the Global Action Days listed below.
The qualifying Global Action Days are:
October 11, 2019 - International Day of the Girl
- October 17 - Global Poverty Day
- November 25-December
10, 2019 – 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence
March 8, 2020 - International
April 17-19, 2020 - Global Youth
- Global Action Week for Education (3rd or 4th week of April)
23, 2020 - Girls in Information & Communication Technology
- World Environment Day
Please note that some Global Action Day discussions may contain
sensitive issues relating to religious beliefs, cultural standards,
and family values. Your troop and Girl Scout should approach these
topics in the way your families see fit. The toolkit includes a
sensitive issues form, in case your troop is interested in tackling
big issues with older girls.
You'll know girls have earned this patch when they know more
about the issues facing our world and what they can do to make the
world a better place. Girls earn the Global Action Days patch by
celebrating three of the Global Action Days during the year by
completing at least one activity from the toolkit for each day.
Please note: World Thinking Day has its own award and cannot be
used to earn the Global Action Days patch.
patch: After you have participated in at least 3 Global Action
Days complete the
online form by June 15, 2020 and we'll provide the patches, free
of charge! After submission, you will be notified when patches are
mailed out or available for pick-up! Tip: Use the chart on page 11
in the toolkit to track your progress.
