What is non formal education? At the European level, there has not yet been a single consensus on the interpretation of non-formal education, due to differences in the traditions of non-formal education in different countries. Definition of non-formal education was developed by experts of the Council of Europe in cooperation with the European Commission.
As part of the European Knowledge Center for Young People project, non-formal education is understood as any form of non-formal education that complements formal education by assimilating the skills and abilities necessary for a socially and economically active citizen of the country. Non-formal education is based on certain principles, the most important of which are: learning in action (learning by doing), learning to collaborate, learning to learn. “Learning in Action” means getting different skills and abilities during practice. “Learning Collaboration” involves gaining and developing ideas about the differences that exist between people, the ability to work in groups and in teams, and to accept and collaborate with others who are around them. “Learning to learn” means getting information seeking and learning skills, skills for analyzing your own experiences and identifying individual educational goals, and the ability to apply the above in different life situations.
The main method of non-formal education is research. A person who learns conducts a diverse knowledge of the surrounding world, which takes place at different levels: cognitive, practical, and sensual.
