this email to learn more about the student group he hopes to set up in the
U.S. Also note that the website PlaNet for planning students might be of

Subject: Fwd: [planet] New journal of the built environment
Hello I am Duane De Witt, a new admit to the MCP
program in the fall. Below is a message from a group
of student planners in Copenhagen, Denmark. After the
Danish part is an announcement in English from a
student in Britain interested in submissions to a new
journal. Please read it. This July, I will try to
attend a meeting of the International planning student
group PlaNet in Europe. I attended one last year in
Denmark. They are a good group of people and would
like to partner with us at Cal. I would like to start
Cal PlaNet this year. Please give me a write back if
you are interested in this totally student run
planning group currently in 8 or so European nations
and a chapter at Columbia U. in NYC.
It will be fun, informative and thought provoking.
When I return from the Amsterdam conference I will
share written info with all who are interested rather
than jamming up the Planning announce email board.
Thanks for your time and all the best. Duane De Witt
Note: forwarded message attached.

[planet] New journal of the built environment
Paul Clark fra University of Cambridge søger sparring til at skabe et
nyt tværfagligt tidsskrift om det bebyggede miljø. Han har skrevet et
oplæg (læs nedenstående), og det virker til, at der kunne være god
mulighed for, at alle fagligheder kan komme i spil.
Hvis én af jer bliver inspireret, kan I skrive til Paul Clark på

Subject: [PlaNet-L] New journal of the built environment
I am writing to request contributions to a new journal that I am
starting up concerning anything and everything to do with the built
I am about to finish a Masters degree in Land Economy at the University
of Cambridge (previous degrees in Urban Planning from Nottingham and
Town and Country Planning from the Bartlett School of Planning,
Univerity College London) and have come to realise that there aren't any
accessible journals or publications that deal with the wider concepts
associated with the built environment.
As such I am looking to produce something without any
professional/academic/national boundaries on issues related to the city
and the urban form. I envisage this to range from anything from Le
Corbusier to congestion charging and thought that this e-mail list might
be a good place to start.
The articles don't have to be of an academic nature but anything you
feel may be of interest to a wide audience. The pieces can be as simple
as descriptions of your experience of movement through a city or a piece
on your favourite urban space or building. You might have an essay that
you have done, or are currently doing, but if in doubt just send it on!
English only though please.
At the moment it has the working name of "OPPIDAN" - an old english word
for 'urban'. Comments on whether you think this is suitable, or any
alternatives, would be gratefully received.
Please forward this on as widely as possible and I look forward to
hearing from you soon.
