The current “greening” of informal education raises the question: “What is it?

” The most common answer—that informal education is education outside of schools—is convenient but not very useful.

First, since a lot of what happens within schools is informal education—for example, sports, debating societies, language clubs, and yearbook—the distinction is not precise.
