This MOST School is co-organized by UNESCO and the Cuban National Committee of UNESCO's Management of Social Transformations (MOST) Programme. It aims to strengthen the capacity of participants to manage social transformations related to youth issues through the interface between research and policy, using knowledge from social and human sciences.

Six main themes are included in the training program :
a) social structure and dynamics of youth in Cuba;
b) migration;
c) opportunities for participation;
d) relationship education-unemployment-inequalities;
e) culture, communication and emergency information, and communications technologies; and
f) methods for improving the design of youth policy.

The school will have a national reach and include 40 participants representing national institutions, provinces and municipalities.

MOST Schools are capacity-building activities focused on strengthening the competencies for evidence-informed decision-making in Member States. They help develop the capacity of researchers and decision-makers to translate knowledge into action.

The agenda will also include a special segment on MOST Future Literacy Schools.
