World Thinking Day 2012 was celebrated and enjoyed by Little Friends, Guides and Senior Guides across Sri Lanka on February 22.
The theme this year was “We can save our planet”.
Activities related to this theme were organized in each province. They ranged from managing polythene waste and making vegetable beds to addressing landslides and initiating garbage
Further, each Company/Pack planted their own “Thinking Day Tree” to
commemorate World Thinking Day, with many Packs and Companies organising a World Thinking Day Programme in their schools.
