Welcome to Eko Fika. Would you like to chat about environmental issues, try a Swedish recipe and get to know like-minded people in your city?

Swedish Institute Alexandria and the Centre for Sustainable Development of the American University in Cairo are collaborating together in this activity. The aim is to create a platform for ecological citizens to come together and talk about a new concept, idea or innovation in the field of sustainability.

Date: Wednesday 15th August
Time: 12:00 hrs. until 14:00
Venue: The Blue Salon of the Swedish Institute Alexandria

How to Participate?

If you are confident in your command of the English Language, send an email to with the following:

  • A small paragraph on what is the most pressing environmental issue of your city and how do you think you can solve it
  • A copy of your ID and full name in Arabic

We will write back to you with a confirmation of participation.

What will we discuss?

This toolkit is based on the concept developed by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation, we are now bringing it to Egypt. The discussion will be about energy efficiency in building and how can that be achieved. Somaya Albadry, an architect, teacher assistant, interior designer and most importantly a researcher in the field of sustainable architecture has prepared a set of question cards that we will use all together to get to know more about this topic.

Don’t forget to register as places are very limited.
