There's a plan to extend the day from 24 hours to 26 hours

The details on how to make this change in practice have not been agreed.

According to Mayor Wenche Pedersen, this will increase time spent with family and attract new residents, the Politico website reported on Wednesday.

A project called MOREtime has been submitted to the European Commission, in which the Vadso region appeals to the EU to influence the Norwegian authorities to create a time zone with 26-hour days.

Pedersen admits that details on how to make this change in practice have not been agreed. "The clock will be moved from 12 pm to 1 pm, and we will see how it goes," she said.

She hopes the lengthening of the day will attract more people to move to this remote region. In her opinion, the population of this area is "more important than ever" in connection with the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. The mayor adds that additional hours can also be spent on meetings with family and hobbies.

Norway is not a member of the European Union, but is part of the European Economic Area (EEA). The EU directive regulates arrangements for seasonal time changes, but not the creation of separate time zones.
