Those who want to participate, can register at for one of the six locations of the chain and then come there punctually between 15:30 and 15:55 on Sunday. Volunteers will then point the way into the human chain, with arrows additionally marking the way. People can also sign up via the website if they would like to volunteer to help with the campaign.

It is requested to comply with the mask requirement for events of this kind. To enable a safe human chain, the organizers ask for creativity: Items such as scarves, ribbons or Hawaiian chains should be brought along to close the human chain and ensure distance.
