The Deep Education (subtitled: Quality and Innovation in Erasmus+ Non-formal learning) project is a complex educational activity for youth workers aiming at innovative methodologies in the area of cross-sectional themes of European non-formal education (NFE in general, participation, interculturality, inclusion). It combines one international training course with two activities of the participants on local level. The project targets an existing network of organisations which work in a similar style and have been organising activities together.The main objectives are: to summarize and share the experience from previous projects; to review the themes and methods in regards of the current needs; to combine main NFE themes with modern methods based on traditional patterns; to create a clear and realistic work plan for a specific topic with adequate methods; to start a new phase of cooperation in the field of those methodologies.The project is designed for 33 youth workers from 10 countries (CZ, DE, ES, HU, IR, IT, PL, SK, TU, UK), who already have at least a basic experience in the field and the potential to use the outcomes in their work. The main idea and overall methodology of the project is based on blending universal archetypal patterns (natural cycles, labyrinth, pilgrimage, rites of passage) with modern educational approaches and their application in current themes. Special attention is given to the general availability of the methods for its use in different contexts and accessibility for various target groups.The main outcome of the project next to the competences acquired, is a wide portfolio of learning tools which can be used in local and international youth work. Also a practical handout will be created to support and inspire work in the area. The project in general promotes the recovery of traditional cultural patterns and their transformation into approaches useful for the society of our time.
