Bob Weir likes to keep up on social-political matters and has lobbied formally and informally for environmental and social reforms he believes in. The former Grateful Dead veteran will be doing it in a more official capacity now that the United Nations has named him a Goodwill Ambassador. Weir takes on the role of helping the international body inform the public and advance the cause the positive role counteracting climate change can have in reducing poverty while promoting sustainability. A ceremony honoring the newest Goodwill Ambassadors takes place Sunday (9/17) during the 8th annual Social Good Summit in New York City.
