One framework that might help us navigate some of our current challenges relating to the regional skill shortage is to re-vitalize the well tested old saying: "Think globally but act locally".

The main reason for the need to re-vitalize is that the current challenges relating to the regional skill shortage are largely inter-connected. Many of us who are attempting to contribute to their solution find it easier to operate within a too narrow view of our current challenges. This narrow view is fine, but only once we are located locally and we have decided what we should do first and what we should leave for later.

This paper is focused on the conference theme of Regional Skill Shortage but some readers will see that for them, it has a much wider relevance.
