From 2021 the EU will do away with daylight savings leaving each sovereign state to decide between eternal summertime or wintertime. So which to choose? For DW's Tamsin Walker it's a no-brainer.
So it's going to happen. From 2021 the EU will do away with daylight savings and leave each sovereign state to decide between eternal summertime and eternal wintertime. For DW's Tamsin Walker it's a no-brainer.
The EU is set to end daylight saving time in 2021, at least in some states. The European Parliament has taken another step towards freeing members of the bloc from the mandated change, but why is it taking so long?
Europe is one step closer to ending the twice-yearly practice of changing the clocks after the European Parliament voted in favor of a ban. Now, it has to find a compromise with each EU member state.
On Sunday morning, in almost all of Europe the clocks will be set back one hour. It could be the last period of winter's standard time in the EU. Good riddance, says DW's Ralf Bosen.
