After more than two years of discussion, Iceland's government decided not to
move its time zone back to -01, where it was before daylight saving time was
introduced. Currently Iceland is at +00, effectively permanent DST. Proponents
of changing back had argued that DST has harmful effects on human health.
To counteract DST's health effects, the government decided instead to launch an
educational campaign to get Icelanders to sleep more. It is also considering
monitoring children's sleep habits and starting school days later.
