Proposal on implementing permanent time zones in the European Union

➡️ Drafted last year together with our International Alliance for Natural Time (IANT) partners and several experts from the Barcelona Time Use Initiative (BTUI) International Expert Lab, including renowned professors Till Roenneberg and Eric Herzog.

➡️ Our goal is to show national politicians and other stakeholders that abolishing DST, which the EU approved in 2019, does not have to result in the dreaded 'patchwork' of time zones. Just follow the sun - or as we call them, the natural time zones!

➡️ You can find the proposal here in English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, and Portuguese,
