Open Day Carbon6


On behalf of World of Walas we would like to extend a warm invitation for you to come to Carbon6! On Sunday, September 2, the sixth edition of the open day will take place, where the old Central Bureau for Statistics building will be opened to the public. A day with a lot of variation where several enthusiastic tenants of Carbon6 will open their doors and where you can take a look at what happens here.

The creative cluster of Carbon6, XCBS, will organize a beautiful arts- and crafts market, and Popschool Parkstad will show what the students have been working so hard on over the past period. Three live bands that have rehearsed in Carbon6 will perform during this day as well. Other examples of enthusiastic participants for the open day are De Buurderij Heerlen, and the former miners and volunteers of the Dutch Mining Museum (Nederlands Mijnmuseum) would love to tell you more about it.

In the field of innovation there will also be a lot of things to do. You can look at 3D printing or see how phobias can be treated with Virtual Reality. In addition, you can learn how bees live in the city and how the air of these bees helps in the treatment of health problems.

We aspire to show you CarbonBlue during this day. This construction above the parking spaces has recently not only supplied solar energy, but also ensures filtered air throughout the day, captures rainwater, and cleans the air and water in the area. In addition, it is a good example of a responsible way in which timber construction takes place in Africa.

Are you, like us, enthusiastic about Carbon6 or have you become curious about what this special place in Heerlen, The Netherlands has to offer? Then come and visit us on Sunday, September 2, between 11:00 and 17:00! The address of our location is Kloosterweg 1 (for cyclists and pedestrians) and can be found by car along the CBS-road in Heerlen. Access and parking is free and delicious snacks and drinks are available at the Chopain coffee shop. On our Facebook page you can find more information about this day. We’d love to see you there!
