Girl Scouts earn their Global Action Award

Global Action Award

In 2015, leaders worldwide agreed to work together to accomplish 17 goals by 2030: the Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs). 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 SDGs by discovering, connecting, and taking action in their communities and beyond. In 2020, we’re emphasizing SDG #5 (gender equality). 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.
