Hello. Welcome to Tortoise.
You’ve been invited by Tortoise to become a member for just £50. We’d be thrilled to have you.
A taste of our journalism
We are focused on the Big Five forces that are shaping our lives, our societies, our world.
Join for £50 and get all this for a year
10 tickets to ThinkIns, the engine of open journalism. Tortoise members participate in open news conferences, live and unscripted in our newsroom.
The news not as it happens, but when it’s ready. The slow news feed lands in the app, online or in your inbox.
Tortoise quarterly is a short book of long reads. Modern fables, true tales, old stories re-examined, new ones revealed.
The ThinkIn is the engine of open journalism. And it’s open to you.
Tortoise ThinkIns are live, unscripted conversations where we harness the diverse experience and expertise of our members to shape the way we see the world. Members and guests can join the conversation in person – both in our newsroom and at venues across the UK and the world – or watch live online. So far, we’ve hosted ThinkIns in Amsterdam, New York, Lesvos, Manchester, Edinburgh, Davos, Bristol, Birmingham and Washington DC.
Coming to a ThinkIn is the best way to experience what Tortoise is all about. We’d love to see you.
Our upcoming digital ThinkIns
Whilst the newsroom remains closed, Tortoise holds digital ThinkIns every day. Right now, it’s more important than ever that we get together – albeit virtually – to make sense of what’s happening. Digital ThinkIns are free and open to everybody. Take a look at what’s on and click “register” to sign up.
