The end of daylight savings time is likely to happen in Europe as its citizens have voiced their wishes to finally rid of the bi-annual practice of switching between summer and winter time. Of some 4.6 million citizens asked, 84% of them responded that they do want the “turning of the clock” ritual to cease. EU nations move the clock forward by one hour in March and back again in October — this has been going on since 1996.

With that said, it looks like the European Commission’s involvement will influence the EU Parliament’s decision to abolish the time change that occurs twice a year. EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker strongly stated that this is what the people want, “we will make it happen”. Of course, everything would still need to be approved and a decision would need to be made if it would be “constant summer or winter.”

The EU move is also important for the US as California voters prepare to make the same decision in November.

In other global news, Osaka, Vienna and Melbourne have been voted as some of the most livable cities in the world.
