The X World Congress of the Organization of World Heritage Cities, held in Quito, Ecuador in 2009, focused on the theme "Revitalization of Historical Centers: How to Engage All Social Actors?"

These proceedings include the four keynote papers presented during the congress. The papers were conceived in a manner designed to encourage participants to reflect on the "why" and the "how" of preserving not only the material but also the social and cultural testimony of historic cities and, in so doing, bring forth their true essence and authentic spirit.
