The even stronger resolve for 2020 is that Together We Can. Together, we'll overcome the roadblocks and difficulties and find solutions; together, we shall finally implement what has been negotiated already in international agreements, such as the Paris Agreement, the Convention on Biological Diversity, the Law of the Sea, the Sustainable Development Goals. The new decade is our common chance to implement what we have already agreed and to fill the remaining gaps in still needed fresh commitments. 2020 is billed as the super-year and start of the super-decade when the time of delivery has come. We're providing inputs to the stock taking at the UN Ocean Conference in June in Lisbon.
Our work will remain focused on engaging as many people as we can reach through the sciences and arts to be part of the many and diverse solutions to the crisis. We continue our active participation in academe and also remain committed to strengthening the capacities of small-scale fishers, women and men, as part of the SSF Academy so that they can be a constructive force in the transitions to living sustainably with the ocean rather than being victimised and further marginalised.
We thank those stepping up donations in December and January so that the anonymous donor will now match the amount with almost the maximum of 2000 EUR promised.
