Who We Are
We’re Discere, a multimedia platform designed and created by students, to encourage and foster discussion, learning and create an informed global community.
Long Story Short
Being students ourselves, we’ve been through the intricacies of the schooling system and we’ve come to recognise that schools’ curricula are often outdated; limiting students from their passions. We’ve come to realise that the best sources of knowledge often derive from the experienced. This motivated us to create network that links students to professionals through a range of multimedia content. Our vision for the future is to bridge a pathway between aspiring student and experienced mentors around the globe.
