What's in the RED Toolbox?

toolbox_magnifier_sm.jpg

The Regional Economic Development (RED) Toolbox is a national platform for supporting smart, connected and sustainable regional economic development.

Australia’s economic future depends on the foundation of our productive industries – agriculture, creative industry, defence, manufacturing, medical & health, METS, smart trades and tourism.

We need more exporters in Australia. We need to increase the value of the goods and services we sell. We need to collaborate actively, and share examples of what works and what doesn’t more quickly and widely.

So partner today. Engage and work with others on building capability across industry sectors, promoting export, adding value to regional businesses and organisations and creating a more fertile foundation for jobs and sustainable regions.

Signing up is free. This gives you access to regular news and events. You can also join groups and comment on blogs. 

Or become a partner.

Why did we launch the RED Toolbox?

Why did we launch the RED Toolbox?

Because…

Jobs are disappearing. Digital technology is destroying more jobs than are being created. Skills demands have changed. Wages have stagnated. Digital disruption is impacting every sector, region and business category. 

The RED Toolbox - how it all works

The Regional Economic Development (RED) Toolbox is the C21st platform for smart, connected, sustainable regional development.

Launched at the SEGRA event in Port Augusta in late October 2017, the platform continues to develop in response to partner interest and request. We are now expanding Groups regionally and nationally, and moving into development of the Projects section of the toolbox.
