International Days

It is a new year. Let us recognize  10 International Days that WAGGGS celebrates  each year
2015 is a historical year – a year to step up our efforts in the last run up to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) deadline, and an opportunity for transformational change, when the world will adopt the post-2015 development agenda to replace MDGs.
15 years ago, the Millennium Development Goals articulated a bold vision and a promise to free people from extreme poverty. We, as the leading movement for girls and young women, committed to working on the MDGs in 2008 by introducing our Global Action Theme focusing on the MDGs: ‘girls worldwide say, “together we can change the world”'. Ever since then, our Movement has worked tirelessly to help achieve the MDGs, through innovating projects, non-formal education programmes, and community and advocacy work.
With less than one year left until the MDG deadline at the end of 2015 and the end date of our Global Action Theme, we are calling on you to step up your efforts with the MDGs! We hope that you will come together to scale up your work on MDGs, share messages of achievement and encourage decision-makers that more needs to be done.
In 2015, we will be celebrating the International Days recognised by the United Nations that are relevant to the MDGs.
