#drupal has #activitypub support, and is also mentioned in the presentation for the event. It is one of the drivers for the enthusiasm of the EC to investigate the #fediverse further.

It is great to hear they are also focusing on supporting other alternatives for big tech services, such as @Matomo

Dear Fediverse, 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 in EU institutions, we'll establish liaison, and will hopefully broaden mutual co-op in future.

We organize together with @NGIZero who provide great support!
