UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals define a worldwide framework that embraces all the human activities. Goals, targets, and indicators are basic elements of the pragmatic scheme that UN identified to update well-known concepts included in the word “sustainability” since 1989. Earlier, the awareness about opportunities and limits to growth (Meadows et al., 1972) was clearly stated in the 26 principles of the “United Nations Conference on the Human Environment” that was held in Stockholm, Sweden, from June 5–16 in 1972. Since almost 50 years, the United Nations emphasize the necessity to overcome singular and specific needs towards a global and long-term vision. In the last half of a century, this is the most relevant worldwide story that tries to address the individual and the general behaviors towards more responsible actions. Apart from the practical outcomes that demonstrate the difficulties to reach aimed results, in this chapter author wants to stress the necessity to reconcile some dichotomies that emerge in sustainable planning and design for vulnerable communities: 1. Qualitative VS quantitative approach. 2. Subjective VS objective point of view. 3. General VS specific remark. These three issues are diffusely treated trying to remark common objectives and similar viewpoints of human settlements and territory.
