Norway Islanders Want to Go ‘Time-Free’

挪威小島居民請愿取消時間

Many people who live on Norway’s far-northern island of Sommaroey are campaigning to go “time-free.”

居住在挪威最北部的索馬洛伊島上的許多居民正在進行一場呼吁“時間自由”的運動。

They note that between May and July, the sun does not set there for 69 days. To enjoy the bright summer months, they would like to ignore traditional business hours. For example, stores would be open when people are there to work at them. Schools would operate when teachers and students are ready.

他們指出在5月到7月之間,那里將面臨69天的極晝。為了享受明媚的夏季,他們想要不按傳統的營業時間生活。例如,商店希望只要有員工上班就營業。當老師和學生都準備好了,學校才會開學。

Kjell Ove Hveding is one of the local leaders of the campaign. He said the 350 people who live on the island already go mostly time-free. He said that in the summer at 2 in the morning, you might see “children playing soccer, people painting their houses or mowing their lawns, and teens going for a swim.”

謝爾·奧維·赫維丁是該請愿運動的當地領導人之一。他說,住在島上的350名居民已經基本上沒有時間概念了。他說,在夏天的凌晨2點,你可能會看到“孩子們在踢足球,人們在粉刷房子或修剪草坪,青少年們去游泳。”

To show their feelings about time, many islanders take off their watches. They leave them on a bridge that connects the island to the mainland.

為了表示他們的決心,許多島民摘下手表。他們把這些手表扔在了連接島嶼和大陸的一座橋上。

Earlier this month, Hveding met with a Norwegian lawmaker. He presented a formal request signed by people who live on the island. The request asked the government to declare the area a “time-free zone.”

本月早些時候,赫維丁會見了一位挪威議員。他提交了一份由島上居民簽署的正式請愿書。該請愿要求政府廢除時間制,宣稱這里為“時間自由區域”。

Hveding noted that he understands going completely time-free would be too complex in a world that operates on schedules. And, as an article in the Smithsonian magazine says, people’s health depends on keeping a usual rhythm of being asleep and being awake.

赫維丁指出,他明白,在一個按部就班的世界里,完全實現“時間自由”太復雜了。正如《史密森雜志》上的一篇文章所說,人們的健康取決于保持正常入睡和蘇醒的節奏。

But Hveding argues that letting go of time limits can also be good for people. He said the time-free proposal would permit the islanders to get used to the daylight and feel more calm.

但赫維丁認為,放開時間限制對人們也有好處。他說,這項無時間限制的提議將使島上居民適應陽光,感到更加平和。

“The idea is also to chill out,” he said. “I have seen people suffering from stress because they were pressed by time.”

“這個想法也是為了讓大家能夠放松下來,緩和情緒”,他說。“我見過有人因為時間緊迫而倍感壓力。”

Since the people of Sommaroey made their proposal, other northern towns have reportedly supported similar ideas for their areas, too.

自從索馬洛伊島居民提出該建議以來,據報道其他北部城鎮也支持推行類似的想法。
