Global Action Award
In 2015, leaders worldwide agreed to work together to accomplish 17 goals by 2030—these are referred to as the Sustainable Development Goals, or SDGs, or Global Goals for short. They focus on things like 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!
The Girl Scout Global Action award calls for girls to address the Global Goals by discovering, connecting, and taking action in their communities and the world. In 2021, girls will explore SDG #13 (climate action) to earn their Global Action award.
The Global Action award is an official national award, so Girl Scouts can wear it on their vest or sash, just like a badge.
