Knowledge is power. Now We Know aims to enlighten students to the world around them by bringing coherence to current affairs and political climates.

If you get on board with us, we will soon have a huge community where now we know.
A we is much stronger than a you, so together let’s break those barriers.
This is our main focus.
Knowledge is precious, that is why we are creating a bank to look after it.
Soon, we will have a whole collection of concepts and key terms set at a University level standard, explained in English so that we can all understand the cool things people are getting up to from plasma physics to limited liability companies.
