Miguel Morilla Hernández
Barcelona's Youth Council
Graduated in Political Science by UPF (2019) and currently finishing a degree in Law at UOC. Working as an administrative in a peace education association. I started in the youth associative movement during high school through a student's association in defense of public education and continued at university, period in which I was elected as national coordinator for three years (2017-2020). I joined the board of Barcelona’s Youth Council in 2019 representing the "Association of Progressists Students" (AEP) and currently I’m the referent of projects about formal education and youth emancipation. I've been always implied in associations or social movements that have a social perspective and try to improve people's live. The youth people are facing a difficult time with highs levels of unemployment and suffering the precarity of temporary jobs, adding the difficulties that in cities like Barcelona exists such as the elevated prices of housing. The Barcelona's Youth Council claims for the recognition of the value of the youth and to take in consideration the youth perspective at the time to apply public policies.
