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 2021, girls will explore climate action (Global Goal #13) to
earn their Global Action Award. Every Girl Scout must complete
five steps in order to earn her Global Action Award. The first four
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!
