 1.Which is better when assessing and implementing Sustainability:​ Holism or Reductionism?​ (There is no right or wrong answer, Sustainability is a complex subject and trying to assess it and implementing it in a system requires to have a simple starting point and gradually take into account the links between the element outside the primary boundaries etc.) 1.Which is better when assessing and implementing Sustainability:​ Holism or Reductionism?​ (There is no right or wrong answer, Sustainability is a complex subject and trying to assess it and implementing it in a system requires to have a simple starting point and gradually take into account the links between the element outside the primary boundaries etc.)
  
-2.Is Economic prosperity necessary to even consider the two others pillars of sustainability?​ (For many people, sustainability costs money to implement and even just measure, ​however, we can find some examples around the world where the economic factor is considered equal to the other pillars. Depending on which way Sustainability is achieved and in what boundaries, the economic factor can be lessened)+2.Is Economic prosperity necessary to even consider the two others pillars of sustainability?​ (For many people, sustainability costs money to implement and even just to measure.

 3.Is it possible to educate people on the complex and still not globally defined subject of Sustainability?​ (Sustainability and especially sustainability indicators differ with scale, location and time. How to educate people (what population) on the importance of sustainability?​ Theory or practical examples?) 3.Is it possible to educate people on the complex and still not globally defined subject of Sustainability?​ (Sustainability and especially sustainability indicators differ with scale, location and time.

 4.How to define a good equilibrium between the different SIs? (defining a range between feasible and acceptable is an important step in defining an SI. However, expectations and pre-requisite change over time and need to be consistently redefined depending on the evolution of a sustainable system) 4.How to define a good equilibrium between the different SIs?
