EGP unveils new website

Websites are never perfect at their launch and this website will be no exception. A team of people have spent months assessing both the current information flow and our expectations in the coming years, preparing designs, critiquing the stages, creating the final product, not to mention having to adjust to a new working methods and expectations. 

The Old and the New

Old and new websites

The new website has a far better ability to handle images, graphics and other multi-media. Social media now functions alongside the website and the opportunity is now there for visitors to the site to express their opinins, and become contributors to the scope of the site and the information provided.

Welcome to the new and improved European Green Party (EGP) website. The timing has the site launched as Greens from all over Europe are gathering in Copenhagen, Denmark, for the Spring Council. We have the opportunity to both present the site and get immediate feedback in the first days as we shape the site in the coming weeks.

There is such a range of information being developed by the 41 political parties associated with the EGP, and this website is far better able to organize and present the information to  Green party supporters and the general public. With this radically improved website structure and database, we are far better placed to present the scope of our information in a way that will both inform our base, but also equip them with the means to help us develop our collective presence. 

The website is an integral part of a developing internet strategy for the EGP. The website is the backbone. It is the core resource where we are able to both document our work and offer the platforms for a far wider stream of information using social media tools.

Websites are never perfect at their launch and this website will be no exception. A team of people have spent months assessing both the current information flow and our expectations in the coming years, preparing designs, critiquing the stages, creating the final product, not to mention having to adjust to a new working methods and expectations. 

The site is not about what we need today, but rather what we will need in the future as we access, create and promote new, interesting and essential information for our supporters.   As such, building a perfect website is impossible.  To create a website today, you have to imagine the needs in years to come. And when you consider how quickly, and radically, the internet has changed in just the past five years, imagining the needs for the future for just one site sometimes is akin to a Ouiji board and a Magic 8-Ball.

Today we have what is best called the prototype live. In the coming weeks and months, we will be refining the site, adding more and more information, developing new chapters, sections, features that we believe will bring a new awareness of the EGP both within our supporters network and with the general public.

The people who visit the site, who support the Greens, will have more opportunity to respond, recommend and participate. Articles posted will often have ‘comments’ available, so you can express your opinion. And with the social media links such as Facebook and Twitter, you have the opportunity to promote the information that you find interesting to your own circles. And we will be exploring more and more ways that you can be a part of our  information line.

And with that, there are repeated reasons for you to leave this website. There is a collection of social media streams that can suit your fancy, whether you prefer your news in 140 characters or as something to ‘like’ or as something more visual. Follow the links here to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr, Flickr and more.
