or even better in consistent or vanilla plone contenttypes so that they
can be exported from the conference site into a plone archive site?

can subsites have their own diazo theme?

If you save the living environment, the biodiversity that we have left,
you will also automatically save the physical environment, too. But If
you only save the physical environment, you will ultimately lose both.

1) Don’t drive species to extinction

2) Don’t destroy a habitat that species rely on.

3) Don’t change the climate in ways that will result in the above.
