More information

Fika Without Borders events were popularised by participants in the ”Social Innovation in a Digital Context (SIDC)” programme at Lund University. The concept comes from the belief that a coffee table gathering can bring together people from all over the world. Fika is a social institution in Sweden; it means having a coffee break with one’s colleagues, friends, date or family. These simple egalitarian social interactions can help break barriers and change the world one fika at a time.
