My name is Beat Baggenstos, I'm 34 years old and I'm a citizen of Zurich, Switzerland.
Before my involvement with the Syrian refugee crisis, I worked as a business manager for Deutsche Bank. I'm holding a Bachelor of Arts in Social Science (Sociology, Psychology and Political Science) from the University of Zurich.
In 2015 I quit my job in the finance industry in order to travel and climb around the world. After volunteering in Lebanon with the Lebanese NGO Salam LADC I decided to found ClimbAID and launch the A Rolling Rock project.
I'm a passionate climber and believer in climbing as a sport with many social, cognitive and educational benefits for the psycho-social well-being of human-beings.
