Apple's design guru Jony Ive will join U2's Bono in an interview to discuss the (RED) partnership and its impact at Cannes Lions festival. The interview will take place on Saturday, June 21 and will be moderated by Shane Smith.

In an exclusive seminar for Cannes Lions delegates, Bono will join Jonathan Ive, Apple Inc’s Senior Vice President of Design, in a discussion moderated by Shane Smith, CEO and Founder of VICE Media, and introduced by Anne Finucane, Global Strategy and Marketing Officer of (RED) partner, Bank of America. Bono and Jonathan Ive will discuss the success of (RED) and it’s unique collaboration with global partners – including Apple, (RED)’s largest corporate contributor to the AIDS fight – and the record-breaking (RED) Design Auction curated by Jonathan Ive and Marc Newson. The auction resulted in $44 million for the Global Fund on World AIDS Day last year.

(RED) Proud Partners include: Apple, Starbucks, The Coca-Cola Company, Bank of America, Beats by Dr. Dre, Belvedere, Claro, SAP, Telcel and Live Nation Entertainment. To date (RED) has generated more than $250 million in an effort to support HIV/AIDS grants in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia.

Apple's own contributions have reached over $70 million, according to an announcement by the charity back in April. You can check out Apple's current (RED) products here.

Who cares about Bonio the guy thinks he's god, but when you look at how he lives his life it's just a joke, more that he's taking the pi55 out of those he claims to care about. If he cared he would live in a normal house like most people and plough all his earnings in to the causes he says he cares about.
