Global Overnight Congress
Posponed untill FALL 2017
Designed for Cadettes, Seniors and Ambassador Girl Scouts, this year's Global Overnight Congress will focus on food and hunger. Participants will explore the way food is produced and distributed in the world.
Is hunger inevitable? What does it mean to have food security? How does malnutrition affect women and girls? What is the impact of war and civil unrest on food? Why are people hungry in developed countries? Where do I fit into all of this?
Each year the congress is a series of interesting and informative hands on activities which explore different global issues. Girls come away with a better understanding of the world today, as it really is, and how their decisions can have global impacts. Comments from girls who attended in previous years include “It was fun and interactive way of looking at the world,” “It changed my perspective,” “It put me in somebody else’s shoes”.
Participants will earn the 2017 Global Action Badge.
