3.6 million people are living in overcrowded properties, 1.7 million in unsuitable houses and over 1 million are on waiting lists for social housing. House prices defy any logic. We are all now affected by the housing crisis – but there is increasing disagreement about what causes it and how we can fix it. What does a better housing market even look like? We want to hear your experiences, and what needs to be done to tackle it.

Chair: Chris Cook, Editor and Partner, Tortoise and former Policy Editor, Newsnight

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.
Breakfast from 08:30, starts promptly at 09:00. If you are late to a ThinkIn you can 'SlinkIn'!
If you would like to contribute to this ThinkIn, let us know by emailing
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.
