Take the Sustainable Finland Pledge

6/20/2019 11:57 AM

The nature has taken care of us for millions of years and now it’s time for us to take care of it in return.

By taking the Sustainable Finland Pledge you make a promise to respect and treasure the Finnish nature, its inhabitants and culture during your visit.

On my journey I pledge to be like a Finn,
and by this, I mean slowing down from within.

The wilderness lets me relax and connect,
I promise to treat it with the utmost respect.

Its forests and lakes should remain plastic-free,
so I will not leave any rubbish behind me.

The world-class tap water shall quench my thirst,
because in my choices the climate comes first.

In Finland it’s our equal right to roam free.
This right should be enjoyed responsibly.

The berries and mushrooms are there to be eaten,
but I’ll stick to the paths that are already beaten.

Long before humans the wildlife’s been there,
so I won’t set up camp just anywhere.

I shall also respect the lives of locals,
and will be considerate with cameras or loud vocals.

I know Finns can seem just a little reserved,
but with this pledge their trust will surely be earned.
