At #SocialHub we're preparing a great event in the form of two webinars and a workshop in April, for representatives of the European Commission.
Interest for the event came from EC itself, who via @NGIZero - funder of many great AP projects - approached SocialHub to organize.
You can help prepare and certainly join the Event!
If you are interested in helping, or want to suggest topics for discussion, then we invite you to join #SocialHub as a member.
This event is a great opportunity for #fediverse evolution. The EC/EU itself is interested in making a move towards #foss and pursues a set of values of being more #Open #Privacy respecting #Collaborative with #Transparency and #Inclusion as principles.
@humanetech @activitypub @NGIZero Would be very cool if successful. Working in the Brussels bubble, I do see some things moving at different parts of the Commission, which is nice to see (e.g. Commission-wide adoption of Matomo, Drupal). Still long way to go, esp. in legislation (thinking e.g. of FOSS in public procurement).
It is great to hear they are also focusing on supporting other alternatives for big tech services, such as @Matomo
