The concept of Non-formal adult education is associated with the Danish philosopher, poet, educational thinker and clergyman, N. Grundtvig, and his thoughts concerning free educational opportunities. The concept first arose in the 19th century and is one of the special features of the Danish education system. Non-formal learning activities are frequently based on private initiatives by non governmental organisations NGOs.
