Rocio Cacho Orts
Rocío is the Programmes Coordinator within the Partnerships team. Having specialised in International Security and Terrorism from the University of Nottingham, her studies triggered her interest in the connection between conflict and social justice. She is specifically very passionate about tackling socio-political issues such as climate change, refugee crises and sexism from an intersectional, youth-led approach.
She has previously worked in the youth democratic engagement sector as an Events & Media Manager empowering young people to get political and vote. She firmly believes that citizenship education is crucial for young people to understand systemic flaws and create engaging, unstoppable future leaders.
