Two Andalusians selected as European ambassadors to ensure quality in youth information

Young Andalusians Javier Manuel Tordesillas and Marisa Salvador have been two of the four young Europeans selected as youth ambassadors by the European Youth Information and Counselling Agency (ERYICA). The selection has been made through a public call to be part of a working group that will create the European Youth Information Quality Label. This label will guarantee the accuracy of youth information.

Youth ambassadors must be between 18 and 27 years old at the time of application and can remain a member of the working group until they are 30 years old.

Javier Manuel Tordesillas, 22 years old, from Jerez, has a degree in Law from Loyola University, is a final year student of International Relations at the same university, and is studying for a Master in Human Rights, Democracy and Globalisation with a specialisation in International Humanitarian Law at the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Open University of Catalonia). He is currently secretary of the Board of Directors of the pro-European youth association ‘Equipo Europa’.

For her part, Marisa Salvador, 20 years old and from Tocina (Seville), completed her secondary education at her local high school, to which she returned to finish her Baccalaureate after spending a school year in Canada, thanks to the Amancio Ortega Foundation Scholarship Programme. She is currently preparing to start a degree in Philosophy at KU Leuven, Belgium.

ERYICA has selected the members of its working group based on their key competences and language skills. Those chosen will be part of the group for a minimum period of three years, with the possibility of renewal once. In this particular case, the work will focus on the period from March 2021 to December 2023, meeting twice a year, in person or virtually, as circumstances allow.
