Stream Con: Louis Cole on trying to save the world, one vlog at a time

Posted on

Louis Cole, the globe-trotting, dreadlocked, selfie-stick-toting YouTube star, isn’t sure how to save the world, but he’s working on it.

During a recent interview with People at Stream Con in New York, Cole talked about how his upcoming round of videos will tackle big ideas.

“Often my adventures are kind of just me having fun, experiencing the world,” Cole said, “but this trip in particular we want to find people around the world that are doing amazing things and highlight their stories and their ideas.”

He continued, “We don’t have all the answers and ideas that are going to solve global problems. We have some ideas, but there’s people out there that no one can hear — they’ve got small voices, they don’t have a social following. What we want to do is find one person on every continent, fly out there, and hear from them what they think the answers to solve the world are. … We’ve kind of called it compassionate problem solvers.”
