This article raises the question of the role of non-formal and hybrid education as a form of personal and social sustainability in the war-time adversity. The authors attempt to estimate the role of the eco-facilitation course as one of the original Ukrainian approaches to psychological assistance. The course was provided to different categories of students (displaced and relocated within Ukrainian borders or with a refugee status in Europe and USA). It was found that experimental training by the method of ecofacilitative teaching contributes to individual and social sustainability in terms of rhythmic development (thesis-antithesis-synthesis). In particular, the changes in pedagogy reflect the logic of their non-directive teaching (ecofacilitation). Ecofacilitation is an educational course aimed at developing skills for sustainable self-development or personal stabilization in conditions of instability and chaos, which closely corresponds to the living conditions of an individual during wartime.
