The focus for all three Forums will be the WAGGGS Global Action Theme, girls worldwide say “together we can change our world”, which addresses the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). By the close of the Forums in 2012, over 600 girls and young women aged 14 to 30 from 145 countries will have learned leadership and advocacy skills, gained knowledge of the MDGs, developed and distributed a declaration demanding action from governments, civil society and individuals and committed to personal action plans to effect positive change in their own communities, locally and globally.
