DIY Tin Clock
Posted on 25 March 2012
In the European Union, Summer Time begins today at 1:00 a.m. Universal Time (Greenwich Mean Time). All time zones change at the same moment.
This means that today clocks have been turned forward an hour in Europe.
Many countries observe DST (Daylight Saving Time), and many do not. Many countries use DST to make better use of the daylight in the evenings.
Many people believe that DST could be linked to less road accidents and injuries.
The extra hour of daylight in the evening is said to give children more social time and can boost the tourism industry because it increases the amount of outdoor activies.
