Knowledge Drives Action. Help Us Liberate it.

The modern flow of information is overwhelming and encoded in jargon. Experts can decode subsections, but this knowledge is rarely communicated to the public, or even between experts. At eParliament, we believe that collaboration requires communication, and that in the 21st century, collaboration is required for innovation.  

Submit an IdeaProposal , or Written Three Minute Thesis and help us build a new public good that makes expert knowledge accessible.
