Find, create and organize events

Mobilizon is a free, libre and federated groups and events management platform. Most proprietary social medias collect behavioral data and social graphs by hosting groups and events management tools (such as Facebook events, MeetUp, etc.). This can become a problem, even more when your group works on topics like activism, raising awareness and empowering citizens. Mobilizon allows for a federation of interconnected hosts, that decentralize by design data concentration while permitting interactions between users across the federation. This group and event management tool has been designed by asking and considering the needs of mobilized citizens. It includes features that has been since implemented as well by mainstream social medias (multiple profiles for each account), and does not reproduces mechanisms driven by the attention economy. As such, Mobilizon is not a social media, it does not pander to egos, but focuseson being a toolkit tomanagecommunities. On top of the eventpublishingtool, it features a group discussion tool (akin to a minimalist forum), a group page management tool (that can be used as a one-page website), a group public and private posts tool (similar to a blog), and a group link directory (to organize links to online documents, resources, etc.). With this grant, Framasoft aims to improve Mobilizon's search results (within an instance as well as throughout the federation) and recommendations. We also want to help people find groups and events close to their interests or their location, as well as allow them to import their events from other platforms when possible (Facebook, MeetUp, etc.).
