Dear !, we announce:

ActivityPub for Administrations

Our members at SocialHub are very busy preparing for our European Commission events. In two webinars and a workshop we’ll introduce EU representatives to ActivityPub and its applications on the Fediverse

Besides focus on deploying ActivityPub apps within EU institutions, we’ll establish liaison, and will hopefully broaden mutual co-op in future. The EC is following a path of adoption of FOSS software and very interested in alternatives to Big Tech social media platforms.

We organize together with NGI Zero who have provided funding for many federated apps and research projects. They are a great help in setting up the current event.

The event takes place on 19, 26 and 29 April, and is free to join for anyone who is interested. Follow the attached link for more details.

Here is the announcement at NGI:

A community dedicated to fediverse news and discussion.

Fediverse is a portmanteau of “federation” and “universe”. It is a common, informal name for a federation of social network servers whose main purpose is microblogging, the sharing of short, public messages.
