Eco fika

Swedish organic fika plus a discussion forum on sustainability equals Eco Fika. This is an easy way to gather interesting people and initiate discussions on organic and sustainable food. Our choice of food (what we eat, how our food is farmed and raised and transported) has a major effect on our climate and the environment. Eating organic food that is locally produced can make a big difference.

Enjoy a wonderfully tasty Swedish fika in the company of like-minded. Use any parts of this toolkit to arrange an Eco fika day sure to inspire and inform. A delicious bonus is to inform about culinary Sweden and the Swedish language. This toolkit is based on the concept developed by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation. We thought it to be such a great idea that we wanted to spread it outside the borders of Sweden.

Building blocks

This toolkit includes Swedish fika recipes, question cards with discussion topics, a glossary of Swedish fika words, as well as ready-to-use posters and flyers to help you market the event. Each material is available as high-resolution PDF files in English and as Word files for translation. Once you have the texts in your local language, feel free to contact the Swedish Institute for help creating PDF files. If you decide to send them out for print at a local print office, the Swedish Institute is also happy to help deliver all necessary files.
