call to action

¿Cómo se podría traducir esto en la siguiente frase?

He said he did not feel he deserved to be in the company of some of the "transformative figures" who had previously received the award.

Speaking outside the White House, he said he would accept the prize as a "call to action".

Un llamado a actuar ?

Gracias por la ayuda!

Un llamado a actuar ? ==> exhortación/aliciente
