Irekia unveils its new home page

2013 September 4

Irekia, the direct communication portal with the public that the Basque Government runs online, unveiled its new design last week. The emphasis is now on citizen participation, true to the goal of the current government to delve further into transparency, good government and rigor in management.

The new version of Irekia, the fourth since it was launched in January 2010, retains the basic features for which this tool was created, that is, to provide a channel for the public to learn about what the Government is doing at any time, underpinned by the principles of transparency, participation and collaboration. It is a re-design of its main home page, where the citizen participation section takes centre stage.

The new Irekia thus provides the public really easy access to the information on the activity of the government and, at the same time, allows them to submit any suggestions and options they deem appropriate.

The header of the new home page has a news section which successively highlights the latest top news about the Government, along with live broadcasts of the events on its agenda for that day. Then and in the central part of the screen, the spotlight is on the section dedicated to citizen participation, with 3 tabs where the Basque general public can channel their opinions, suggestions and contributions on any subject.

The first of the tabs, which covers Citizen Requests, gathers all those requests and suggestions that the public want to contribute on areas that concern them or which are topical. At the same time, they can use the tab to vote for or against the other citizen proposals (this tab consolidates and centralises the content that was previously divided into citizen proposals and questions, but the operations are the same). The Government Proposals tab includes those Bills, strategic plans, programmes and initiatives where the Basque Government wants feedback from society in order to reach conclusions on each of them.

Finally, the Government Responses tab is where the public can find the response to the issues that they have raised with the Government on a specific theme.
The new Irekia still has the now standard sections on the government schedule and news items, along with those containing the video and photo libraries, and the section that monitors the topical themes in the different social networks in our sphere.

    Lehenengo inpresioa ona izan da: hierarkiak hobeto zehaztuta, antolaketa argiagoa... esango nuke trinkoagoa dela, aurrekoan aukera handiak baitzeuden informazio-armiarman galtzeko eta dispertsiorako.
    Sare sozialen menua ere egokiagoa da, dena batuta. Nik beharbada, Eusko Jaurlaritzaren gizarte-sareetako erabileren eta estiloaren gida sartuko nukeen menu horretan.
    Fitxen egitura ere egokiagoa da eta espero dut herritarren parte-hartzea bultzatzen laguntzea.
    Tira, denborak eta herritarrek esango digute asmatu duzuen ala ez. Oraingoz, egindako lanagatik zoriontzea baino ez da gelditzen.

    Tiempo habrá de analizarla en profundidad, pero la primera impresión es que se ha ganado en coherencia, con una estructuración más clara de la home. Los contenidos están jerarquizados de manera más atractiva, priorizando algunos de ellos, como los referidos a participación ciudadana.
    También me parece altamente positiva la reestructuración de todo lo referido a la redes sociales, en menús más compactos. Por aportar algo, yo hubiera incluído en el menú la Guía de uso y estilos.
    Esperemos que esta nueva estructura resulte atractiva para los ciudadanos y participen en la misma.
