I see alot of discussion about communication here. We in Diwala are working
on a skill identity service backed by current identity providers but using
did and vc's as core layer.

We are based in Norway and Uganda.
We are considering to start a discussion group, read meetup, around
decentralized identity in both countries, starting with Norway.

Any experience from the value of that?
And any interest from anyone nearby to come join one of the events?

And anyone with any experience in engaging with the government around this?

Many questions, but hope for some insightful answers
