At our third Community Event and Conference in Zagreb – Croatia, we will be hosted by TransAid who recently hired their first intersex staff member.
This year the theme of the community event will be advocacy. We will be focusing on three areas of advocacy, political advocacy, health-related advocacy, and personal advocacy.
While the area of political advocacy will primarily be focused on the needs of intersex activists, the fields of health-related advocacy and personal advocacy will be focused on the needs of our entire community. We will be running sessions in parallel with each other and will try to balance the program so that all community members can attend sessions that fit their needs for the entire community event.
This year’s event like the previous two community events consists of a one-day public conference and a two-day closed community event. This year arrivals will be on Wednesday the 25th of September and departures on Sunday the 29th of September.

Note to researchers: In the past years, we have received multiple applications from endosex/dyadic (non-intersex) researchers for scholarships to attend OII Europe´s community event. Researchers will not receive scholarships from OII Europe. Researchers will not be allowed to attend the community event. Researchers will be allowed to attend the public event but at their own cost and they will have to make their own travel and accommodation arrangements. Of course, if you are a researcher and also intersex you may apply for a scholarship but as a participant. Conducting research at the community event will not be permitted.
