Seb Alex

Seb Alex is an animal rights activist, lecturer, photojournalist, and author. In 2022 he was awarded the inaugural Animal Photojournalism Fellowship by We Animals Media.

Born and raised in Lebanon, Seb Alex moved to Europe to pursue his career in Sustainable Architecture. Having worked with the UNHCR’s refugee program for a year, he then took the opportunity to enter the corporate world and work as an international coordinator of projects for an architecture company in Barcelona.

A year after, he decided to leave his corporate life behind and dedicate all his time to animal rights advocacy.

In recent years, Seb has given animal rights advocacy workshops to more than 1300 activists across Europe, the Middle East, and Australia, helped launched the world’s first animal rights and vegan support center, and has published the free ebook When Animal Rights and Logic Meet in 20 languages.

Since 2019, Seb has given lectures in over two-thirds of the universities in The Netherlands and more than 40 universities and schools in Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Spain, Belgium, the United Kingdom, and Portugal, reaching more than 5000 students between the ages of 13 and 30.

Currently, Seb concentrates on social media content creation and gives lectures on animal rights, ethics, and sustainability in universities and schools. He is also the founder of the Middle East Vegan Society, a non-profit organization concentrating on the growth of veganism in the Middle East and North Africa using educational and corporate outreach.
