Each year, Girl Scouts of all levels can earn the Girl Scout Global Action award. This award connects the WAGGGS sisterhood by helping girls work together to make a difference on topics that affect girls and women all over the world.

The Girl Scout Global Action award focuses on the Global Goals. In 2015, leaders from all over the world agreed to work together to accomplish 17 goals by 2030. The Global Goals (also called Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs for short) focus on taking care of the environment, making sure all people have enough to eat, and improving people’s health. They’re big goals, but Girl Scouts know a thing or two about changing the world!

This year, the Global Action Award focuses on Goal 1: No Poverty and Goal 15: Life on Land. Girls can earn their Global Action Award by discovering, connecting and taking action on these goals through the Global Action Award activities.

The Global Action Award is an official national award, so you can wear it on the front of your vest or sash, just like a badge.
