We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend Günter Halvax.
He has worked without hesitation to support the European Neighbourhood Watch Association and contributed significantly to its growth and development.
His tireless work, extraordinary dedication and commitment will never cease to be remembered. He was a true pioneer. A beloved and respected friend. A model of enthusiasm and passion that inspired all those who were lucky enough to know him.
Let us gather its fruits and seize its example of integrity and dedication to the community.
We send our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
Thank you, Günter, for your valuable contribution to making our communities better and safer.
We will miss you. Rest in peace, dear friend.
EUNWA began collaborating with the Municipality of Venice in 2019. In September of the same year, we held our Fifth Annual Conference in Venice, hosted by the municipal administration.
Founding Conference, October 23 - 24, 2014, in Vienna
With crime rates in Europe being high, personal security and protection of personal property issues are moving into the focus of citizens across the European Union. Whilst the Police is doing an incredibly good job to resolve crimes and to prevent the spreading out of organized crime, the citizens of Europe are complementing police efforts by establishing Neighbourhood Watch organisations.
EUNWA founder Karl Brunnbauer invited the international Neighbourhood Watch Community to hold its third annual conference in Vienna. 44 participants representing 32 organizations from 14 countries were happy to join him in Vienna.
Our Neighbourhood Watch Community was invited by Controllo del Vicinato and the community of Castel Ritaldi to hold its second conference here. On the 23/24 of October 2015, 50 participants represented more than 20 organizations from 13 countries, although it was a big logistic challenge to come together far away from different airports and locally widespread hotels and pensions. Finally, Italian hospitality was the key to bring us together in excellent atmosphere.
To the Members of the EUNWA
Vienna, October 2021
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
After founding the EUNWA in 2014, I have been President, enjoying the cooperation with so many good friends and colleagues. Those of you who participated in the 2019 Annual Meeting in Venice will have best memories of this event and the EUNWA can be proud of the Venice Charter that we all signed those days.
Sponsored by Venice City Council, Axon and Nextdoor companies, on September 2nd and 3rd 2019, we held in Venice our 5th Annual Meeting. The event, led by our President Karl Brunnbauer and moderated by EUNWA Legal Advisor Roberta Bravi and Vice-president Leonardo Campanale, was strongly wanted by the City Councillor Enrico Gavagnin – whom, in doing the honours, remarked how strongly City Mayor Luigi Brugnaro believes in Neighbourhood Watch prevention program.
With pleasure we announce the appointment of our new advisory board member for the EUNWA.
