Daylight saving time ends on Sunday. On October 30, the hands in Europe will be turned back from 3:00 to 2:00 and thus to standard time. Otherwise always good for discussions; the excitement was also limited this year – humanity continues to deal with more pressing issues such as the Ukraine war, the energy crisis, and inflation. That’s why it’s still entirely unclear what will happen with the time change in the EU.
The ball is still in the court of the EU Council of Ministers, which discussed the abolition of the twice-yearly time changes the last time in June 2019; responsible are the transport ministers. The European Parliament voted in March 2019 with a large majority for the abolition of daylight saving time as of 2021 – or a year later if there should be difficulties for the single market. However, most member states must still agree to this to become a reality.
