United Invitations aims to promote integration by getting people to meet over a meal and talk Swedish.
UNITED INVITATIONS - FOR AN INCLUSIVE SOCIETY
United Invitations was founded by Ebba Åkerman and Lina Makso with the simple, but brilliant, idea of bringing together people who speak fluent Swedish with people new to Sweden that want to learn Swedish and get integrated into society. The goal is to counter segregation and promote inclusion.
UNITED INVITATIONS – FACILITATING PEOPLE TO MEET AND SHARE A MEAL
United Invitations is a service facilitating Swedish people and immigrants studying Swedish, to meet up for dinners. The dinner is at someone's home, always free and unconditional. All participation is voluntarily and on the participants own responsibility.

Inspired by founder Paul Ricard's famous motto "Make a New Friend Every Day", Pernod Ricard Sweden encourages United Invitation's mission and activities. Partly by arranging a bigger event, partly by encouraging employees to privately arrange or attend dinners themselves.
