The arguments over Brexit, the divisions between London and the rest of the country, the ties between the four nations of the UK have all strained the idea of a sense of nationhood. How do we refresh the ties that bind us as a country? Do we want to? And, if so, would a modern national service, whether as a period of military or social service, improve social cohesion, social mobility and a shared sense of belonging?
What is a Tortoise ThinkIn?
A ThinkIn is not another panel discussion. It is a forum for civilised disagreement. Modelled on what we call a ‘leader conference’ in the UK (or an editorial board in the US), it is a place where everyone has a seat at the table. It’s where we get to hear what you think, drawn from your experience, energy and expertise. It’s where, together, we sift through what we know to come to a clear, concise point of view. It is the heart of what we do at Tortoise.
Drinks from 6.00pm, starts promptly at 6.30pm. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can ‘SlinkIn’!
If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
We film our Thinkins so we can watch them back, edit the best bits and share them with members who weren’t there in person.
Members can find their ThinkIn booking code in My Tortoise, under My Membership.
