A report released by the U:Cooperative Alliance states that the UCooperative alliance is responsible for the creation of a new economic infrastructure and a new way of living that has lifted millions of people out of poverty and created jobs.
The report, entitled “COVID-20: The New American Economy,” details how the U Cooperative Alliance and other global groups helped create a new type of economy and made the U of A the first city in the world to implement solar-generated electricity.
In addition to solar, the report outlines how the economic and political revolution helped create jobs, the revitalization of communities, and improved quality of life for the U’s residents.
It also includes stories of individuals and organizations that helped transform communities.
“Our vision is to help you thrive, and help your community thrive,” the report states.
A report from the U Cooperative Alliance, which was released this week, also highlights the impact of the economic recovery on the U coop.
Its members have seen an increase in the number of people enrolled in community college and the number participating in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) program.
NCATS, the U has been leading the nation in research in basic sciences, which includes nanotechnology, bioengineering, and medical devices.
This week, NCATS launched the first human trial of a human-made nano-device that can be inserted in the human body and used as a treatment for cancer.
Nanotech, nanotechnology and bioengineering are not new fields, but the NCATS project is one of the first major advances in this area in the past decade.
As a result of this development, UCoop’s members have experienced a 60% increase in median incomes, and their economic and social impact has been directly linked to the success of NCATS.
Additionally, the researchers say the U is now one of only two cities in the nation that has a solar-based energy system.
On the other hand, the new economic and educational infrastructure that UCooper and other partners have created is a powerful force that will allow the U to take full advantage of the opportunity for economic growth that COVID has created.
And as a result, the economic, social and environmental gains of this economic revolution have been the driving force behind the economic gains of the last decade, according to the report.
