Agne-Henrik Strid

After a reclusive childhood in a small village in Friesland, The Netherlands, Agne-Henrik Strid developed from a timid boy into a wanderer in search of adventure and new experiences. The turning point came at age nineteen when he volunteered to serve as a UN peacekeeper in civil war-torn Bosnia. In the fifteen years that followed, he led a roving existence that took him to many places; From chicken farmer on a Kibbutz in Israel to Anthropological researcher in Tegucigalpa in Honduras, from humanitarian aid worker for the United Nations in the Guerrilla and Paramilitary controlled areas of Colombia to a pilgrim on the way to Santiago de Compostela.

Agne-Henrik has two Master titles: Disaster Studies, Wageningen University/Radboud University and Network for Humanitarian Assistance, University of Groningen/Universidad de Deusto, Bilbao. He speaks his languages; Frisian, Dutch, Spanish, English and German, loves to wander and walk long distances, and has a great fondness for Latin America where he lived and worked for seven years. He lives with his wife and their two young children in The Hague.
