July 10, 2012

Two GSCM Girl Scouts will be traveling to Chicago this weekend for the Girls’ World Forum, the third and final in the series of Young Women’s World Forums, WAGGGS’ international centenary events. At the GWF girls and young women aged 14 to 18 years old will come together from all over the world to discuss and develop action steps to address three of eight UN Millennium Development Goals that were selected by girls for World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS):

  • MDG 1: Eradicate Extreme Poverty and Hunger
  • MDG 3: Promote Gender Equality and Empower Women
  • MDG 7: Ensure Environmental Sustainability

It’s expected that 500 participants from 90 countries and 82 Girl Scout councils will be in attendance! You can follow what happens at the GWF by following their blogFacebook page and Twitter.
