Turning words into action – walking the talk – is required in our work and commitment to questions of sustainability. At Linköping University we take these words extremely seriously, with our measures to ensure sustainability and efficient energy use.

We have chosen to showcase this work in an exhibition of the same name – Walk the Talk – at both Campus Valla and Campus Norrköping.

The exhibition is public, free of charge, and accessible all year round. Follow the exhibition pathway by following the points marked on the map at each campus.

Green commitment

Green commitment at Linköping University is evident in many ways. Our students, researchers and personnel work actively to create the conditions favourable for a sustainable future. Green commitment is one of the reasons that Återbruket and the Walk the Talk project have been successful at LiU.

Location: Campus Valla, University Park, Smart bench

Enjoy! Solar energy for you and your smartphone

Did you know that saving energy can be good both for the environment and for your wallet? Here are some simple tips:

  • Change to low-energy lamps or LEDs, and turn off lights when they’re not needed. 
  • Boil pasta with the lid on the pan, and you can save up to a third of the energy.
  • Wash your clothes at 40 degrees instead of 60 degrees, and you can significantly reduce your energy use. 
  • Unplug chargers when not in use. 
  • Use energy saving mode on your electronic equipment.
