World Thinking Day 2018: Impact Compass No.3
IMPACT USING U-REPORT
Learning outcome: Discover U-report and the power of your voice.
Preparation: Smartphone, tablet or computer with internet connection
U-Report is WAGGGS’ latest global project in partnership with UNICEF. It is a social messaging platform where anyone, can speak out and be heard on issues they care about. Over three million young people have already registered as U-Reporters, including thousands of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.
As a U-Reporter you can share your experiences and recommendations on issues that affect you with world leaders, national and local decision makers by answering weekly polls through your mobile phone. We will write back to you to keep you updated on how your voice was heard so you can see the difference you are making.
We will ask you to share your views with WAGGGS and your national Girl Guide or Girl Scout Association. This way we can improve the work we do and make sure Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting is always girl-led.
For this year’s World Thinking Day, we have created a U-report poll to measure the impact of Girl Guides and Girl Guides in the lives of girls worldwide.
You can participate in the poll individually or as a group.
All you need to do is log in to your Facebook or Twitter accounts, and:
• For Facebook: visit the U-report page
www.facebook.com/ureportglobal/ and send an instant message with the word WTD
• For Twitter: visit www.twitter.com/ureportglobal and send a direct message with the word WTD
By sending the word WTD the poll will be activated and you will start receiving the questions.
After completing the poll share the U-Report Facebook or Twitter page via your social media account and invite your friends to join too, using the hashtags: #GirlsVoicesMatter and #WTD2018
Please note that the World Thinking Day U-Report poll will be open from 1 February to 15 March 2018.
