About MSE

MSE plans to change the way that teenagers receive information about school, uni, events and important issues – essentially we are becoming a peer-to-peer platform. We hold strong values about how we can empower the younger generation to communicate, while continuing to highlight social and environmental responsibilities. As you can see, the majority of our staff are currently studying at school and college just like you!
