    just heard, from 1 Dec 2011 there will be a new activity pack available based on the 2012 olympics and Paralympic Games

    apparently guiding uk will be providing:
    • a toolkit to help you plan your own event or get involved with those going on locally (available Jan 2012)
    • an activity pack called On Your Marks to provide a balanced programme of activities with three badges to gain (available 1 Dec 2011)
    • a chance for members to share their thoughts and experiences about the values and culture of the Games, via social media, with Girl Guides and Girl Scouts from all over the world (beginning Feb 2012).


    sounds good!

    look forward to reading about what they need to do for each of the 3 badges :)

    if its 3 different badges (sport, cultures & values) - it sounds big!!!!


    speculates: wonders if other guiding countries will be doing these badges as well (like the wagggs one last olympics was done by loads of different countries)

    Hasn't it been that the host country's association has developed a resource and then WAGGGS has "distributed" it? It was the Greek GA that developed the first one for Athens and then the "Chinese" (Hong Kong) GA that updated/revised it for Beijing, not WAGGGS.
