We are happy to announce that the OIFE Youth Meeting will be hosted by As.It.O.I. – the Italian OI organization from the 7th to the 10th of September 2023.

The location will be Jesolo, a stunning place by the seaside and near the beautiful city of Venice!

A  4-day experience filled with fun, relaxation, and many interesting and interactive activities. Don’t miss out on the chance of making new friends, of enjoying Italian cuisine, and of visiting the amazing surroundings Jesolo and Venice can offer!

What is the OIFE Youth Meeting:

This is an informal meeting for young people with OI. The main goal of the OIFE Youth Events is to gather youth from all over Europe to exchange thoughts and ideas about being young with OI and to network in order to engage future volunteers. Youth meetings are primarily a very fun and interactive experience, aimed to allow young people to get together and share an experience.

“Oife weekends have always been very important to me. It is so nice to be surrounded by people with your own disability to feel just “normal “. It gives me the strenght and energy to go back in my own Society and kick some ass. Because that’s what we do, young people with oi, we often kick some ass. And i love that”

Stephanie Claeys OIFE Board Member and Youth Coordinator

Where will it be?

The accommodation will be at Villaggio Marzotto a very wheelchair-friendly venue, directly facing the seaside and the beach and offering multi-purposes and very flexible spaces and services. 

We are very happy to host again the OIFE Youth Meeting. Meeting, connecting and sharing information with other people is a key value for As.It.O.I. and the OIFE Youth meeting will allow many young people to meet, share ideas, solutions and experiences but above all to make new friends and have fun together.” – Leonardo Panzeri Asitoi President
