Each unit planted their own symbolic “World Thinking Day Tree” and many units had a World Thinking Day Programme in their schools. Walks around the city were organized by Units to make the public aware of the theme - Little Friends, Guides, Senior Guides carried posters designed by them to convey the message of “protecting the environment” to the public.
