Nelson Bonner

CPR Initiative Creative

Technology Educator, Writer & Editor

Nelson Bonner taught technology at Hartnell College in Salinas, California, and Chartwell School in Seaside, California. After retirement he finished his PhD in Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology in Palo Alto, California. As a grandparent, he has focused on a number of projects to address the climate crisis culminating with his joining the CPR Initiative Board.

In 2016 he founded Grandchildren’s Fund For A Fossil Fuel Free Future with the intent of suing the carbon majors and their enabler institutions and individuals for damages to the health and welfare of the grandchildren and their children. He also began writing What More Are Grandparents For? – The Climate Crisis in the words of Grandparents and Grandchildren (Parents, Children, and Nonparents, too). Both of these projects are in abeyance at this time.

Currently, he is launching a lifestyle jigsaw puzzle company for Millennials and GenZ, with 60% of profits going to progressive causes including Climate Protection and Restoration Initiative. Nelson lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
