Hi all,

I was just at events for the Barcelona Time Use initiative time use week 2021 and the panel on changing DST in Europe was very interesting and I thought some of you might want to take a look. It is free to sign up and you can access recordings of all the events including the one on time zones/DST. Description and link below. Loved that there was lots of talk about there being no problem having many more time zones in Europe as ‘our computers handle all of that for us now’.


Future of Europe debates – The end of DST: how can it be placed back to the European agenda?

In 2019, the European Parliament agreed to end the biannual clock change. Nevertheless, the Member States have not been able to achieve an agreement on which time zone has to be adopted. This debate explores how can we place back the debate on the European and Member States agenda.
