Abstract

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to give an introductory overview of the special issue of On the Horizon ( OTH ) on responses to the author's book, The Biggest Wake‐up Call in History ( BWCH ). Design/methodology/approach – The author does not comment on all the contributions to this special issue, but summarises his view of some of the most valuable suggestions for further work that have been put forward. Findings – The author's view is that, overall, these contributions to the special issue of OTH more than fulfil the goal of commenting on and, in some cases, extending the core concerns of BWCH . Originality/value – If the BWCH and the papers presented in this special issue can play even a small part in the process of waking up and taking responsibility then people can all breathe a little easier. People can look their kids in the eye and know that they know the present generation did what was required as well as it could.
