Vancouver, BC, February 25, 2002Â?THE LEVEL and Global Forest Society announced the launch of http://www.GFAwesome.com, a popular free online kids club that has an international membership of more than 4000 children from 36 countries.

”Children are the sole inheritors of the earth and we as adults have the responsibility to prepare them for that role,” says Dr. Reese Halter from Global Forest Society, the non-profit society that funded the development of the online kids’ club. The society believes that early introduction to natural science and ecology is one of the most effective ways to merge children's creative energy with a foundation of science and technology.

The GF Awesome website encourages children around the world to embrace conservation, science, exploration and learning and to become tomorrow's forest stewards. The interactive and exciting website, designed and developed by THE LEVEL, offers children an excellent chance to explore the wonders of nature, participate in indoor and outdoor activities, investigate worldwide weather and challenge scientists.

When asked about the difficult task of bringing to fruition such a large website project Dr. Reese Halter commented that “THE LEVEL'S integrated approach is committed to excellence and their tier 1 product speaks to the globe like no other web-team.” When asked about working with Global Forest, David Marshall, founding partner at THE LEVEL, enthusiastically commented, “GF Awesome is a perfect example of the wisdom at Global Forest. Not only is the society focused on providing scientific research to today’s corporate and government decision makers but also to those that will soon be facing even more difficult environmental decisions.”
