The registration package with accommodation includes sleeping in schools.
This means you will need to bring:
- Sleeping bag (for congress option A) or bed sheets
- Sleeping mat
- Pillow (optional)

What do I do with my valuables?
We won’t have a specific place for participants to keep their valuables. So we recommend you take essentials with you: purse with money, passport, and phone, and take these with you at all times. As a congress participant, you are responsible for your belongings.
Do I need to be vaccinated to come to the congress?
The short answer is no.
We will, however, ask that you fulfill all the requirements the Finnish government sets for those entering the country.
So, the final answer to this question will depend on the COVID restrictions Finland has in place at the time of the congress. We must respect those at all times.
You can find information on Finnish COVID restrictions here: https://new.visitfinland.com/en/practical-tips/covid-19/
As we get closer to the congress, our medical team will provide some additional information regarding COVID measures during the congress. We want to make sure we are all safe.
I would like to get baptised at the congress. What do I need to do?
Sabbath morning will be very special because we plan to have a baptism ceremony.
If you would like to get baptized then, please contact your union youth director.
