It's Your Planet -- Love It! journeys invite Girl Scouts of every age on an adventure to:
- Explore the wonders of Earth as they enjoy the natural world
- Use the three leadership keys -- Discover, Connect and Take Action -- as they become stewards of our fragile planet
- Investigate the science that keeps our Earth -- and us -- spinning
It's Your Planet -- Love It! invites girls to meet female professionals from around the globe who are already saving the planet via original profiles -- researched through first person interviews with scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, artists, and more.
Along this journey, Girl Scouts seek answers to some interesting questions including:
- What happens when dirty water "disappears" down the drain? Where does it go? Why does it matter?
- How much energy could you save getting from here to there if you did it differently? And how much energy is that building using up?
- What would it take to grow enough food to feed the whole planet?
In this journey for kindergarteners and first graders, Girl Scout Daisies join their flower friends for an exciting road trip in a flower-powered car. As they travel the country living the values of the Girl Scout Law, the girls and their flower friends enjoy what's local and learn why that's important. They experience what's great about what grows near them, and they learn how their own special skills make the world a better place.
This journey for second and third graders follows friends Alejandra, Campbell, Jamila, and Brownie Elf as they enjoy some amazing wonders of water. Girls will learn about the endless water cycle and enjoy making their own rainbows as they explore our precious resource of water. They'll meet inspiring women working for water, learn Girl Scout history, and, as a team, come to understand that WOW also stands for Ways of Working. Girl Scout Brownies reach out to their community as they advocate for other people to get involved in protecting water, too!
In this journey, fourth and fifth graders become leaders who energize, investigate, and innovate as they explore their own energy, the energy of their places and spaces, and the energy of getting from here to there. Along the way, Dez, the fashionista spider, learns right along with Girl Scout Juniors. The girls will also meet energizing artists, cooks, engineers, and architects as they Get Moving to get others moving, too.
Air is everywhere in this journey for sixth, seventh, and eighth graders. As the girls explore the air all around them, they'll learn a lot of air-clearing strategies, including how to turn down the volume! That means they'll be improving their personal air space -- and finding the breathing room so necessary to be leaders who make the most of their special flair! Girl Scout Cadettes will also meet scientists, engineers, writers, and artists -- all of them working for Earth's air! To earn their Aware, Alert, and Affirm awards, the girls will build an Air Care Team aimed at airy improvements for Earth and all its inhabitants.
On this journey, ninth and tenth graders get down to the roots of their food network to see how complex and how global food and land issues can be. They'll meet scientists, farmers, artists, and others who have plenty of knowledge to serve up. And they'll have a chance to explore what makes a meal truly happy. This journey will also have girls asking tough questions about their own "food print" as they develop "leader print" and speak up about what they believe in.
This journey for eleventh and twelfth graders tackles the engaging global issue of environmental justice by giving girls the opportunity to create their own equation for justice. Along the way they will see how "Doing the Math" with even the simplest acts can lead to powerful and positive changes in the world. From scientists and doctors to lawyers and environmentalists, this journey is rich with eye-opening career possibilities -- all focused on caring and collaborative work that helps both people and the planet.
