On November 23, 2021 a new Cradle to Cradle Café will take place.

Tapijn in Maastricht has undergone a true metamorphosis; from abandoned barracks to a truly beautiful and lively city park. It has become not only a place for residents to stroll and do recreational activities, but also a pleasant environment to study or work.

In 2010 the last NATO soldiers left the Tapijnkazerne, which is located at the edge of the old city center near the medieval city wall. Now it has become part of Maastricht University.
Sustainability is an important theme for Maastricht University; just like the health and well-being of students and staff. Various evidence-based measures that are related to well-being have been integrated into this new educational building.

Quote Maastricht University: “Students and researchers benefit greatly from a healthy learning and working environment. The integral inclusion of welfare and health in the development of Tapijn underlines the importance of sustainability and health for Maastricht University. ”

The keynote speakers mentioned below, will focus on the importance of the health & well being of the students and other users of the building. They will elaborate further in line with their specialties on how this has come to practice in the realisation of the renovation of Tapijn.
