JOWO will take place at the Free university of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy. The venue is a beautiful city tucked in between the Italian Dolomites.

The nature around the city is a tourist haven for people interested in hiking in the mountains, mountain climbers, biking along the valley and in winter skiing brings millions of turists to the area.

The city is trilingual between the major languages Italian and German and the minority language Ladino. Due to the large degree of tourism in the city, the majority of the population also speaks English.

Bolzano is also the home of Ötzi the iceman. Found in melting glacier ice in 1991 he is one of the oldest human mummies at roughly 5000 years. Currently he rests at the South Tyrol Museum of Archeology, in downtown Bolzano.
