Nepal in focus for first SASA Fika without borders event

April 16, 2014 - 17:00-19:00

The South Asian Student Association (SASA) at Lund University – the student body of SASNET – now launches a new series of what is called Fika Without Borders events. In collaboration with SASNET and the voluntary organisation ABC Sweden, SASA organises a Fika Without Borders gathering focusing on Nepal, on Wednesday 16 April 2014, 17.00–19.00, at the Social Sciences Students Union building, Paradisgatan 5 S, Lund (close to SASNET’s office). The programme includes presentations by Nepalese students and researchers in Lund, Nepalese music, and of course some Nepalese food will be served.
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. SAS plans to organise Fika without borders events once a month, and having one of the eight SAARC countries as a theme each time.
More information about the April 16th event will be posted soon.
