What is a ThinkIn?

ThinkIns are for Tortoise members and invited guests. Catch up below on some of our recent favourites.

A ThinkIn is not just another panel discussion. It’s a real editorial meeting where your insight and experience can help shape our reporting.


How it works

Book a ticket, and we’ll send you a link to join us online. You can bring a friend.

We’ll invite guests with special expertise, but anyone can speak. Just raise your hand.

A ThinkIn is one hour long. At the end, the editor will summarise what we’ve heard.

Is global order out of control?

Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, the withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the ongoing effects of the global pandemic have shaken the world in the past two years like nobody could have predicted. Ramifications in the form of mass displacement are increasing in severity — the UN recently announced that the number of displaced people has passed 100 million for the first time. Listen to Rory Stewart and award-winning journalist Helen Benedict discuss how such catastrophic events been handled, and consider what led us to them in the first place.
