The Lighter Later project is part of the 10:10 campaign to reduce carbon emissions by 10% in 2010 by campaigning to shift the clocks forward one hour throughtout the year in Britain so that we move an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening, when more of us are awake to enjoy it. By changing the clocks this way Light Later believe Britain would be able cut at least half a million tonnes of CO2 emissions every year as well as save lives on roads and give a boost to sport, leisure and domestic tourism. Essentially Britain would be working on a Greenwich Mean Time +1 in winter (same as British Summer Time now) and Greenwich Mean Time +2 in the summer (British Summer Time +1). We would, therefore, still put the clocks forward in spring and back in autumn.
