The Council of Europe and young people: Non Formal Education
This 19-page publication of the Council of Europe explains how the organisation spearheaded the development of non-formal education, even before the term itself was coined in the 1990s. It explains the methodology and philosophy of non-formal education, how NFE has been recognized through the years and validated. It gives also some definition to explain the difference between non-formal, formal and informal learning, as well as a list of publications about this subject.
