The goal of Espoo is that everyone can be actively involved in the development of the city. For this reason, the City of Espoo invited Muslim community representatives to a common meal. Representatives of the Diocese of Espoo were also invited to the meeting.
“According to forecasts, a third of Espoo residents will be foreign-language population in 2035. It is very important for us to have a dialogue with the various Espoo communities”, says mayor Jukka Mäkelä.
Today's common meal was enjoyed in honor of the end of Muslim fasting. The idea was changing thoughts and networking. The goal is to make this meal an annual tradition.
