Indoor climate on the agenda for an entire month at Mindpark in Helsingborg
As Sweden's leading company in the field of ventilation and indoor climate solutions, Lindab wants to enlighten people about the indoor air. Through its innovation hub, a mini exhibition is being organised at Mindpark to get more people involved in this issue.
"People are very aware of what they eat and drink, and regularly discuss outdoor climate. But indoor air in fact can be even more dangerous if the right ventilation system is not in place," says Camilla Andreasson, Concept Manager for Lindab Innovation Hub.
The exhibition runs for a month starting 8 March and concludes with a workshop. Lindab wishes to trigger a discussion about what can be done to improve indoor air. "It often involves very basic solutions and it can be enough just to clean the ventilation system or replace filters. People do not know how they can play a role here and this is something we want to change," says Friberg.
Friberg believes that greater knowledge about indoor environments can improve the standard of living and reduce both allergies and illnesses. "No one would put up with having water with poor quality at home. If the water was brown and smelled off, you would complain about it. But when it comes to indoor air it´s different, the most people doesn´t complain about it - they just accept and often nothing ever gets done about it anyway," says Friberg.
Close to Mindpark is Campus Helsingborg and 75 different companies have set up offices in Mindpark. We hope that there is interest among both university students and company employees for this exhibition and this important subject. "The message is very important for both groups. A poor indoor climate affects health, creativity and productivity levels and it has an impact on those in school and in offices," says Andreasson.
he exhibition is free of charge and open to everyone. Lindab makes it clear that they do not have one specific target group in mind, but instead sees it as important to share knowledge and create interest with as many people as possible. "We are all affected by the indoor climate and therefore want to involve everyone in this debate. It is after all a health issue," concludes Friberg.
