SOW WHAT? (For Girl Scout Seniors)
In Sow What?, Girl Scout Seniors get the opportunity to ponder land use around the world (corn’s a big issue!) and get down to the science and roots of complex and global food issues. Girls plan and conduct a local "food forage" to scope out their "food print" choices, and talk to scientists, local growers and business owners—and even global hunger experts. Using what they learn, girls consider their "leader prints" as they decide who and what they can cultivate on Girl Scout Seniors take time to enjoy a "truly happy meal" together, experiment with new recipes and try out being "locavores" who know how to savor local bounty.
JUSTICE (For Girl Scout Ambassadors)
Justice—for Earth and all its inhabitants—we all know what it is. Why is it so hard to achieve? Girl Scout Ambassadors realize that maybe justice needs a brand-new equation—their equation. By "doing the math" with even the simplest of acts, deciphering how decisions get made, and exploring how to use scientific evidence, Ambassadors create and then present their own unique equation for what justice asks of us. Along the way, Ambassadors find they are also networking and gathering ideas for college and careers. When they conclude this journey, Ambassadors may recognize themselves as the wise and healing leaders Earth yearns for!
