2017 World Thinking Day Slide-Post

World Thinking Day

Saturday, February 25


Is it possible to travel around the world in less than three hours?  The Environmental and Heritage Center (EHC) thinks it is and invites you to become an international traveler without leaving the borders of Gwinnett County or needing a passport.

The EHC and local Girl Scouts from the Apalachee Service Unit are partnering to celebrate World Thinking Day on Saturday, February 25 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.

World Thinking Day is a learning opportunity that celebrates international friendships and reminds everyone that Girl Scouts are a part of a global community with members in more than 150 countries.

At World Thinking Day, each participating troop adopts a specific country, shares information about that country, provides a taste of that country’s cuisine and makes a “swap” that is reflective of the culture.

World Thinking Day may be organized by the Girl Scouts, but the public is invited to participate. EHC’s Director of Programming Jason West said, “You don’t have to be a Girl Scout to enjoy this program.  It is for everyone, and I hope people across Gwinnett and northeast Georgia will come and experience it.”

In honor of the event, the EHC will charge a special admission of $2.00 per person between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.  As always, EHC members are admitted free.  There will be a separate Girl Scout charge of a dime per beverage/food item and swap.
