I think cooking is an important skill to know and also how to look after your health.
Basic skills like..fishing, cooking, growing crops, making stuff...bunch of skills really. And it's sad that we are loosing the basics like knitting, cooking, and woodwork.
I agree!
Growing crops? Doubt a 'combine-harvester' would fit into a suburban backyard to harvest said crop! Lol!

Cooking. Comes in very handy!
Cooking comes to my mind first. No food, no life so for me cooking is the most important skill one needs to have to be self sufficient. Anything else is secondary.
How to ask for help. No-one can do everything entirely by themselves, whatever the circumstances you would need some help in some way.

And if we end up in a world where we need to fish, grow our own crops and make everything ourselves, then working co-operatively will be far more efficient than everyone trying to do everything for themselves.

So, asking for help and the ability to work with others. Everything else can be worked out from there.
1.How to get a job.
2.How to keep a job.
3.How to stay in the job.

The rest will follow.
Many people don't have a clue for Step 1.

Shame Home Economics' was ever dropped from the School subject list.
It should, in this day & age, be compulsory for both sexes.
