On the last Sunday of October, the time changes like every year and the hands of the clock will move back one hour early in the morning. Specifically, at 4:00 am early in the morning, we will move the hands back one hour. The time change for 2020 will take place in the early hours of the last Sunday in October, specifically October 25.The issue that has been of great concern in recent days is the decision of the European Parliament which voted to end the practice of the one-hour clock setting in spring and fall by 2021.
According to the decision of the European Parliament, the time change is not yet “fixed” because for the countries of the European Union which want to maintain summer permanently, it should stop on the last Sunday of March 2021, while for Member States wishing for winter, the change will take place on the last Sunday in October 2021.
In February 2018, the European Parliament called on the European Commission, in a resolution, to carry out an “in-depth assessment of the current summer time directive and to present a proposal for a revision”. The Commission organized a public consultation in the summer of 2018, in which 4.6 million European citizens participated, 84% of whom were in favor of stopping the seasonal changes while 16% were against.
On September 12, 2018, the European Commission submitted a proposal to stop the seasonal changes of the year in 2019 but Parliament postponed the decision by member states for two years. The main benefit of measuring climate change is energy savings. In total, during the seven months of the summer period, 210 hours of electricity are saved by using the sun.
