Hear what our student members have to say

“The most impressive thing about Tortoise is the sheer variety of subjects that you will learn about – stories from every continent, about every field, from every perspective.”

Gianni Sarra, King’s College London

“I’ve been able to meet people from all different backgrounds to talk about different and contemporary topics with invited speakers that I’d have never otherwise met; which isn’t something that other media outlets offer.”

Ruby Ettle, University of Birmingham

“There’s a palpable sense, among young people especially, that things need to change. Tortoise’s model is a vehicle for us, as students, to put forward our ideas and perspectives on the challenges that will define the coming decades.”
Sam Butler-Sloss, University of Edinburgh
