Mobilizon, the upcoming open federated alternative to Facebook Events, has reached its first crowdfunding goal of €20k:
This covers development of the events software itself.
The next goal, €35k, adds federation through ActivityPub, which will let people on the Fediverse share and join events. This could be crucial to helping many more people leave Facebook 👍

France's largest free software organisation @Framasoft has just launched a crowdfunding campaign for an open federated events tool, Mobilizon:

BREAKING - UK MPs pass a motion to declare an environment & climate emergency. This has seen them start to #TellTheTruth about the climate & ecological crisis. They must now halt biodiversity loss, go net #ZeroCarbon2025 & create a #CitizensAssembly.
NEW STUDY: Researchers find that "permafrost collapse" in the Arctic is accelerating and could release 50% more carbon than previously thought, making "massive cuts" from human emissions "even more urgent".
It's official: Cyclone Kenneth is now the strongest storm to make landfall in recorded history in Mozambique -- and in the entire African continent.
DO NOT allow this disaster to go unseen.
