The participants got to try out a 3-course-dinner, while being blindfolded the whole evening directly from the moment when they entered the location. The menu was all vegetarian and to a large extent made of organic food (cooked by ESN:ers), in order to raise awareness about sustainable and healthy eating. In the end of the event we also had a discussion with the participant about their experience and thoughts.
