The Urban Regeneration as the Impetus for Economic Recuperation

This communication was presented and evaluate by a Scientific Community. Using the Casco Vello de Vigo it valued the scale of a continued urban regeneration process, an integral operation that not only aids in rehabilitating buildings but also the recomposition of social and economic ties, and how the recuperation of the urban environment can affect the dynamic of a place, in this case the historic centre.

This communication was read in Heritage 2012 at the 3rd Conference on Heritage and Sustainable Development, held in Oporto in June 2012 by the Green Lines Institute for Sustainable Development.
