Worldwide in nearly all Scout associations, February 22nd marks the birthday of Lord Robert Baden-Powell the founder of the Scout Movement. Coincidentally, B.P. (born in 1857) and his wife Olave Baden-Powell (born in 1889), shared the same birthday.
Nearly all National Scout Associations throughout the world, celebrate this day as « Founder’s Day ». It is considered a special day, as well as an opportunity to learn more about BP’s life and his work. His Writings remain inspiring to many and incredibly on phase with our times.
World Thinking Day
Among Girl Guides and Girl Scouts, and some boy-oriented associations (i.e. Greece, where it is called Imera Skepseos), Thinking Day is celebrated each February 22, chosen as it was the birthday of Scouting founder Robert Baden-Powell and of Olave Baden-Powell.
So, from all my heart i wish every scout and guide a Happy Founder’s Day and an even happier Thinking Day.
