Tortoise: A Different Kind of Newsroom
Tortoise is creating a different kind of newsroom. They believe that to live well in an age when everything moves at breakneck speed, we need to take the time to investigate what’s really going on, to make sense of the forces shaping our future.
Tortoise is on a mission to get the world to slow down and wise up.
They don’t do breaking news, but what’s driving the news. They don’t cover every story, but reveal a few. They take the time to see the fuller picture and offer a concise point of view – informing and informed by their members. A place in both the real and digital worlds, where you can come to learn and to share your views.
Your membership of Tortoise includes live and digital experiences:
• ThinkIns are at the heart of Tortoise. They are a forum for civilised disagreement, designed to harness the experience and expertise of member and shape the way they see the world. Members and guests can join the conversation in person – both in the London newsroom and at venues across the UK – or watch live online.
• The slow newsfeed – a digital edition lands in the app and online every day, with no more than five concise pieces, each tackling one subject or story, in depth.
• A small book of big reads – the Tortoise quarterly e-book. Modern fables, true tales, old stories re-examined, new ones revealed.
