International Dinner brings together all the flavors from different countries. The event is supposed to bring people from different countries together over bites of amazing food from all around the world. Participants were local and incoming students. One of the goal is to promote mobility offers and information regarding this topic will be provided from volunteering ESN members. Sharing food from different cultures will give motivation to go abroad and experience new cultures.
During the international dinner, local and international students were asked to bring a dish which is typical for their home country and to share it with other participants from different countries. The activity promotes intercultural exchange in the cozy and welcoming atmosphere of enjoying a meal together. The event specifically targets international students as well as local students who are interested in participating in a mobility program.
In the evening of 9.12.23, the team and guests met at a room of TU Wien. Most of the guests were members of ESN, Best, AIESEC or international students, who are currently studying in Austria.
