David A. Greenwood, PhD, is Professor and Canada Research Chair of Environmental Education at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. His scholarship, teaching, and activism revolve around place-based, environmental, sustainability, and holistic education. Widely published in these areas, he is also co-editor of several books and journals, including Place-Based Education in the Global Age: Local Diversity. His theories on critical, place-based education have influenced programs in schools, communities, and in higher education across disciplines, including social science, physical science, the humanities, and professional schools such as engineering, social work, business, law, and medicine. His public and academic activism aims to implement critical place-based learning by facilitating acts of decolonization and re-inhabitation with diverse communities. His latest project involves using the labyrinth as a creative form of experiential learning that inspires deep reflection and foster connectedness to self, others, and land. David lives in the forest north of Lake Superior with his partner Jill and their children Eli, Kate, and Ivy.
