About me

Deborah Long

Chief Officer

Scottish Environment LINK

Having trained as a palaeoecologist, I use knowledge of past environments to find innovative and practical solutions to the environmental issues affecting us all.

I am Chief Officer at Scottish Environment LINK, the network for eNGOs working in Scotland, for a sustainable future. For 2 years, I was Programme Director at GROW Observatory, an EU Horizon 2020 project that worked with citizens in 10 countries to gather soil and growing data to share advice and test climate models generated by satellite. Until 2016, I led Plantlife Scotland, working for native plants and their habitats. Before that I headed up the research and arts programme at Kilmartin House museum for archaeology and landscape on the West coast of Scotland.
