The way we live has changed, the way we work has changed, and so have the current workforce skill demands.

In the face of labour shortages and a technological boom, how can we retain and attract workers in a sustainable way? What should we be doing to prepare the education and training needs to meet future workforce demands? What does all this mean for our broader community and the expectations on youth, particularly those in regional communities?
