Apple CEO Tim Cook recently sat down to have a conversation with activist and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, with a range of topics on the table. Luckily for us the folks at British Vogue recorded the whole thing. As a result, we get to see how it all goes down.
British Vogue has published a new conversation on its official YouTube channel, this time between two legendary figures in their own right. One, the current chief executive of Apple, who also acts as a vocal supporter of many activist movements across the globe. (A stance followed by Apple as a whole.) The other an activist and Nobel laureate, writer, and a producer of future Apple TV+ content (among many other things).
The conversation itself is almost a half hour in length, so you’ll want to carve out a chunk of time to sit down and watch it. And it’s absolutely worth a watch. Cook and Yousafzai talk about several different things, including the Apple TV+ partnership that will see child- and family-friendly content launching on Apple TV+ that Yousafzai has said will hopefully inspire people all across the globe.
But, the biggest focal point between the two activist titans is the ongoing partnership between Apple and the Malala Fund. This is designed to help girls all across the globe when it comes to education. Apple helps the organization with technology needs, research into local policy, and much more. The partnership also aims to help girls find educational programs all over the world, and, ultimately, help them graduate.
Learning to code came up, which isn’t surprising at all. Yousafzai talks about her own efforts to learn to code, and Cook weighs in on the topic, saying that coding is the “only global language,” and that “everyone should learn to code.”
The full conversation is worth a watch. You can check it out in the video embedded above.
