Europe Time Zone – Europe Current Time

Most of Europe uses three standard time zones. From west to east the time zones are Western European Time (WET) which is UTC/GMT +0, Central European Time (CET) which is UTC/GMT+1 and Eastern European Time (EET) which is UTC/GMT +2. Western European Standard Time is the same as Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), however, during periods when Daylight Saving Time is in use, Western European Summer Time is one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time.

In Europe Daylight Saving Time is commonly referred to as Summer Time. Summer Time begins at 1:00 a.m. UTC/GMT on the last Sunday in March. On the last Sunday in October areas on Summer Time (Daylight Saving Time) return to Standard Time at 1:00 am UTC/GMT. The names in each time zone change along with Summer Time. Western European Standard Time (WET) becomes Western European Summer Time (WEST), Central European Time (CET) becomes Central European Summer Time (CEST) and Eastern European Time (EET) becomes Eastern European Summer Time (EEST). Throughout the United Kingdom in the countries of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, Summer Time is referred to as British Summer Time (BST). Iceland and portions of Greenland do not observe daylight saving time. In addition, some local communities in Europe may not follow the official time zone rules.

The European Parliament and the Council of Ministers have voted to end the use of daylight saving time or summer time in the European Union in 2021. However, as of October 2022 the proposal has not been confirmed by the European Union and is unlikely to go into effect this year. Read More

Western portions of Russia which are west of the Ural Mountains are sometimes referred to as being in Europe. This area uses Moscow Standard Time which is now UTC/GMT +3 except for Kaliningrad Oblast in the western most portion of Russia which uses UTC/GMT +2. Georgia (formerly Republic of Georgia) uses UTC/GMT +4 and does not observe daylight saving time. The Azores, an autonomous region of Portugal, observers Azores Time (AZOT) which is UTC/GMT-1.

From west to east the six standard time zones in Europe are:
(UTC/GMT -1) Azores Time Zone.
(UTC/GMT +0) Greenwich Mean Time Zone, Western European Time Zone and Irish Time Zone.
(UTC/GMT +1) Central European Time Zone.
(UTC/GMT +2 ) Eastern European Time Zone.
(UTC/GMT +2) Kaliningrad Time Zone.
(UTC/GMT +3) Moscow Time Zone.

In April 2011 the Russian Parliament passed legislation to keep Russia on Daylight Saving Time year round, however, in 2014 Russia reversed that decision and ended daylight saving time on October 26, 2014. In addition Russia added two new time zones. View Russia Time Zones for more details.

How many hours ahead of the UK the World Cup hosts are and kick-off times explained

The World Cup has started in Qatar after years of planning and controversy surrounding the country’s record on human rights.

Despite uproar surrounding the event, many famous football faces, including Gary Lineker and Alex Scott, will be making an appearance at the tournament, broadcasting live from the stadiums.

The time difference between Qatar and the UK will make viewing slightly tougher for those cheering on England and Wales. However, mercifully – most games will kick-off during the afternoon in UK time.

What is the time difference between Qatar and the UK?

Qatar is exactly three hours ahead of the UK.

The country, which is more than 4,000 miles away, follows Arabian Standard Time (AST) – whereas the UK uses GMT during the winter.

UK viewers can watch live on BBC One, with the build-up usually beginning an hour before kick-off. Gary Lineker will be hosting the coverage.

You will also be able to stream the games live online via BBC iPlayer or the BBC Sport website.

Spain started piloting a 4-day working week

  • Business

Spain has begun working on the details of a pilot project to move businesses to a 4-day work week. The government approved a trial that offers companies financial assistance if they voluntarily transfer staff to a 32-hour work week with pay

Specialists from the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism and representatives of the centre-left Mas Pais party have begun work on the details of a pilot project to move businesses to a 4-day or 32-hour work week while maintaining employees’ salaries, El Confidencial reported. The working consultations should develop a plan to help companies “who want to increase their productivity through social dialogue, reduce their environmental impact and improve the health of their employees by reducing the working day.”

Working consultations began after the Spanish government approved a pilot project late last week proving the benefits of a four-day work week. As part of the trial, the government will allocate €50 million to help companies that voluntarily agree to transfer staff to a 32-hour work week without a pay cut. These funds are expected to be received from the amount of € 140 billion, which fall on the share of Spain in European funds to combat COVID-19., notes the newspaper Cuatropoder.

Finland dispelled the myth about plans to introduce a 4-day work week

The money will be given to participants in “clinical trials” (as the government calls the pilot project) in the form of direct assistance. One of the main requirements for participants in the pilot project is to reduce the number of working hours per week to 32 without reducing wages. Reducing the workweek to four 10-hour workdays is not suitable for participation in the project.

Economists say it’s impossible to switch to a four-day work week without a pay cut

Maria Alvarez, co-owner of La Francachela restaurants in Madrid, doesn’t think the move to a four-day work week is “insane”. She explained its implementation in her restaurants by the coronavirus pandemic. Shortening the working week, she said, not only gave very good results, but also contributed to a safer organization of work against the backdrop of restrictions. “We need big measures and great ideas to get out of the crisis,” she told Cuatropoder.
