It's Your Planet--Love It!

Between Earth and Sky

  • Girl Scout Daisies join their flower friends for a cross-country road trip in their special flower-powered car!

  • Along the way, the flower friends (and the girls!) sample the sights, and the wisdom of women working to protect Planet Earth.
  • Daisies earn their Blue Bucket, Firefly, and Clover (uses resources wisely!) awards as they experience what's great about their own region and learn to use their own special skills to help people and Planet Earth.

WOW! Wonders of Water

  • As they dive in, the Brownies realize they can create another big WOW as they try out new Ways of Working as a team.
  • Brownies learn about the water cycle through a "Green Tea for the Blue Planet," and enjoy making their own rainbows as they explore the precious resource of water.
  • Brownies pledge to LOVE water by protecting it, then team up to advocate for other people to SAVE water, too. As they SHARE what they have learned, they find they can inspire even more people to protect Earth's water.
  • Along the way, Brownies experience what it is like to live in places where there is not enough water. They come to understand why the right to clean water is so important to everyone on Earth.

Get Moving!

  • Juniors build their skills as leaders who Energize, Investigate, and Innovate.
  • They earn these three prestigious new leadership awards as they explore their own energy, the energy in their places and spaces (buildings), and the energy of getting from here to there (transportation)
  • Juniors have a new comic story, "Vamos Ya!" to inspire their action (walking school bus anyone?)
  • Dez, the fashionista spider, is also back to add some wit to the journey as she tries to figure out life "off the grid." "How does this carbon footprint thing work?" she asks. "Do I get eight?"
  • From their own paper-making experiment to making beads from newspapers and magazines to forming a "perpetual human motion machine," Juniors will find that GET MOVING! is crammed full of energizing stuff to make and do!
A troop of Juniors in Villanova, PA on the Get Moving! Journey found innovative ways to help the historic building where they meet save energy -- and discovered their voices along the way.

Breathe

  • Cadettes engage all five senses as they clear the air—their own and Earth's.
  • Girls learn to assess air quality inside and out, getting an aerial view of everything from cigarette smoking to noise in the air to deforestation.
  • Along the way, they try some scientific experiments (that could even double as magic tricks to share with Brownies).
  • As they enjoy creating some "breathing room" in their lives, Cadettes may also find a new flair, think about "Hair," and perhaps even try making an ├ęclair.
  • After becoming more Aware, the girls go on to Alert others to act for air, and then Affirm their impact on Earth, as they add these three uplifting leadership awards to their collection of Girl Scout honors.

Sow What?

  • Seniors investigate the food network (no not cable TV—the real one that gets each piece of food to the table).
  • As they ponder the dirt on land use around the world (corn's a big issue!), girls get down to the science and roots of complex and global food issues.
  • Girls plan and conduct a local "food forage" to scope out their "food print" choices, and talk to scientists, local growers, and business owners—and even global hunger experts.
  • Using what they learn, girls consider their "leader prints" as they decide who and what they can cultivate en route to a Take Action Project that positively impacts their food network.
  • Along the way, Seniors take time to enjoy a "truly happy meal" together, experiment with new recipes, and try out being "locavores" who know how to savor local bounty.
  • So what about career choices and networking? Sew what about sewing? Seniors have a chance to try these on, too!
  • When they add Harvest, a prestigious new leadership award to their collection, Girl Scout Seniors will truly be proud of what they have sown on Earth!

Justice

  • Justice—for Earth and all its inhabitants—we all know what it is. Why is it so hard to achieve?
  • Ambassadors realize that maybe justice needs a brand-new equation—their equation.
  • By "Doing the Math" with even the simplest of acts, deciphering how decisions get made, and exploring how to use scientific evidence, Ambassadors will create and then present their own unique equation for what justice asks of us.
  • Along the way, they will find they are also networking and gathering new ideas for college and careers.
  • Ambassadors can also take some time out to Nest and Soar as they ponder new inspirations from birds around the world.
  • When they add the Sage Award to their list of accomplishments, Ambassadors will be confident that they are they are the wise and healing leaders Earth yearns for!
