The goal of the activity was to share the foods and food cultures of everyone's own country, or a country they want to share about. The idea of the international dinner was to share the famous food culture or hidden treasures of everyone's country and to taste and learn something new from one another. It was also a great chance for new people to get to know each other better. The goal was also to integrate international students with Finnish students, who could go to the sauna together in addition to enjoying the dinner.
