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 topics like taking care of
the environment, making sure all people have enough to eat, and
improving people’s health.
Although they’re big goals, Girl Scouts know a thing or two about
changing the world!
Our Global Action Award calls for girls to address the Global Goals
by discovering, connecting, and taking action in their communities and beyond.
In 2022, girls will explore Goal 3: Health and Well-Being, and Goal
11: Sustainable Cities and Communities, to earn their Global Action
Award. These two goals go hand in hand because a healthy,
sustainable community supports everyone's health.
Every Girl Scout must complete five steps in order to earn her
Global Action Award. The first, second, and fourth steps have three
activities to choose from. You only need to do one activity in each
step to earn the award, but don’t let that stop you—you can do as many
as you’d like!
