Ramadan Dialogue Dinner 2024


Félag Horizon orchestrated a Ramadan Dialogue Dinner on March 20th, placing emphasis on dialogue to nurture togetherness and understanding over shared good food. Participants enjoyed enriching conversations while partaking in Ramadan traditions, fostering empathy and unity within the community. This event highlighted Félag Horizon's dedication to promoting dialogue and cultural exchange as indispensable components of inclusivity in Iceland.


Félag Horizon skipulagði Ramadan-samræðukvöldverð þann 20. mars þar sem áhersla var lögð á samræður til að efla samveru og skilning umfram sameiginlegan góðan mat. Þátttakendur nutu auðgandi samræðna á sama tíma og þeir tóku þátt í Ramadan-hefðunum, efldu samkennd og einingu innan samfélagsins. Þessi atburður lagði áherslu á tilraun Félags Horizon til að efla samræður og menningarskipti sem leið til félagslegrar inngilding á Íslandi.
