INTERNATIONAL AMBASSADOR
 

Bob Weir, International AmbassadorBob Weir

Musician & Environmental Activist
GSA International Ambassador and Advisor

Bob began his musical journey at the age of thirteen playing guitar. After a series of club gigs and contact with musicians including Jerry Garcia, David Nelson, and Jorma Kaukonen, a band called The Warlocks was formed, which eventually transformed into the iconic group we know now as the Grateful Dead. Bob has received quite a few notable awards over the course of his successful career spanning over 50 years. These accolades include induction into the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2014 and a GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016.

However, Bob’s accomplishments reach beyond his musical prowess. For his commitment and dedication to environmental activism, he received the honor of appointment to United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, where he is focusing efforts to fight climate change and end global poverty. In an interview with Billboard, Bob stated, “I’d like to see climate change and the ongoing diminishing of biodiversity arrested and dealt with to the point where the sustainability of life on earth isn’t threatened. I’d also like to see people reflexively consider the good of the planet in the choices they regularly make.”

Bob Weir’s passion for impactful change to protect our planet perfectly aligns with the Alliance’s vision of a world in which every person is aware of and accountable for the impact they have in creating an environmentally, economically and equitably sustainable future.
