Now more than ever it’s important to have calm, clear journalism you can trust and have a say in the stories we report.
We don’t focus on what’s breaking news, but what’s driving it – across the world. Tortoise brings focus to the Big Five forces shaping our lives: The 100-year life, wealth, belonging, new things, our planet.

At Tortoise we take the time to investigate what’s really going on; to make sense of news, politics and the forces shaping our future. We don’t just report on slow stories – we care about what happens next. With your help, we want to understand the issues and spend time examining the ideas that will make for a better 21st century. Tortoise is built with and for our members and is driven by a collective desire to dive beneath the surface of the daily news.
Our mission is to create journalism that lasts. That means building a business model that’s responsible and sustainable. It means not being owned by a proprietor with an axe to grind. It means being independent of any political party or commercial agenda.
In short, it’s about belonging to something rather than just paying for it. We don’t take ads, and we’ll never sell your data.
