Can ‘Susty®’ teach children how to protect our planet?
Merlin Entertainments is a global leader in location-based, family entertainment. Its aim is to deliver unique, memorable, and rewarding experiences to millions of visitors across its expanding estate. As part of the organisation’s sustainability vision, Merlin Entertainments is helping to increase environmental awareness in primary schools across the UK.
Sustaining the magic
Merlin Entertainments recognises that its operations have an impact on the environment, and that the effective management of this impact is essential for continued business success. It also believes that environmental awareness should be fun and accessible for children.
That’s a wrap
As part of its ‘supporting our local community’ strategy, Merlin Entertainments is working in partnership with primary schools across the UK to champion caring for the environment. To help with this, Merlin has created a ‘Susty®’ wall wrap as a supporting tool for environmental awareness education, which can be placed on a blank (internal or external) wall within the school.
‘Susty®’ is Merlin Entertainments Planet superhero. He has been developed to help teach everyone about the changes they can make every day to help save our planet. He plays a vital role in teaching children about the importance of behavioural change, and the impact that this can have on the environment, which has links with the national curriculum.
This story shows how Merlin Entertainments supports Goal 4: Quality Education, specifically Target 4.7: “By 2030, ensure all learners acquire knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development, including among others through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship, and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development.”
