“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
“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
“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
