Dear Fediverse Futures community, 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:
This is a companion to Fediverse Futures on Social Coding to elaborate the Fediverse from high-level, non-technical perspectives, brainstorming our visions and dreams.
We need a more holistic approach to fedi development and evolution. We need product designers, graphics artists, UX / UI / Interaction designers, futurists and visionaries to join the dev folks. Everyone is encouraged to join here and enrich our views on what Fediverse can be with diverse and different viewpoints, and to stimulate brainstorming, creativity, thinking out-of-the-box and crazy, wild ideas.
Please read the Social Coding Community Participation Guidelines for more information.

Will the webinar be uploaded somewhere? If so where?
Yes, it will be recorded if everything goes well. It will be uploaded on PeerTube and probably that’ll be to the conf.tube instance first.
It would be great if they could be streamed on peertube as well;)
Yes, we test-drived that, but couldn’t get it to work reliably enough as yet. In general we want to do ‘dogfooding’ as much as possible.
So I just created a nice image that is now part of the presentation in the first webinar:
Shouldn’t Northern Ireland be included? They are part of the internal market. :-)
I don’t understand the magnitude of this, but it sounds pretty big. Definitely interested in listening in.
Yes, indeed it might be. But we don’t know really… it depends which EC representatives join the event. We couldn’t get a very clear picture of the audience. But in any case the EC has really nice plans to support FOSS and alternatives to proprietary, dominant non-EU tech platforms. They want to create a flourishing app ecosystem within the EU, and are looking into all kinds of support. It is exciting. This is just introductory, and we hope from this event we can deepen relationships.
