The Papillon Source Project
The butterfly is the symbol of rebirth and
change. It is also the mascot of the Papillon
Source project, a network of green and
autonomous cities promoting scientific
partnership and return to the roots.
The idea of this project grew in the mind of
Paul Elvere DELSART in 2012 when he, aware
of our era’s multiple challenges, decided to
make a significant contribution by provoking
change and disturbing the status quo.
.
This is the birth story of the Papillon Source project. Its objective is to offer sustainable cities of
innovation, partnership and sharing between people.
Open to every world citizen, the Papillon Source sustainable cities will reunite today’s actors for
a better tomorrow on all five continents.
Each host country will therefore be the creator of its own destiny. France will set the tone, as it
will host the first centers of the program in its South-West region.
The centers and cities in France will be developed in priority in small collectivities. The goal here is
to encourage decentralized cooperation, wealth distribution and the strengthening of social
cohesion.

Our collectivities’ wake-up call
Isolation, rural exodus, unemployment, poverty, and low resources allocation : small
municipalities are victims of a general abandonment. Left to fend for themselves, they are
suffocating due to the development of big cities.

« France abandons its small towns. »
That’s the concerning title that the newspaper « Le
Monde » used to ring the alarm three years ago.
Like many countries, the french state has a tendency
to allocate the biggest portion of the resources to
big cities, at the expense of small rural collectivities
of less than 10 000 inhabitants. Their small and aging
population does not allow them to create or being
allocated enough resources to guarantee their
population’s welfare or economic development.

ni de

This situation leads to a vicious circle, as a small aging population means no attractivity. And with the
lack of economic attractivity comes the lack of opportunity for the youth and unemployment. The
younger population ends up migrating to big cities, promises of a better future. The collectivity’s
population is then even smaller, therefore getting even less resources from the state.

What is the solution to break that cycle ?
-

Financial independence
Active involvement of the population
Sustainable development

Those are the three pillars for the rising of small
collectivites in France. The collectivities will have
to generate their own resources in a participative
way and create sustainable activities.
And that is why the initiative « The municipalities
counterattack » has been created.

The municipalities counterattack !
« The municipalities counterattack » is a local and public participative investment project with a
financial and branding return. Potent tool for the creation of a new type of social-based collective
cooperation, it is a solution encouraging the autonomy and auto financing of collectivities, as well
as for growing their international influence.
As the promoting country of the Papillon Source project, France will first develop this initiative for
collectivities of 5000 inhabitants and less, and later for those of 5000 to 10 000 inhabitants.

The principles of this initiative
•Municipalities will finance a pool of projects
targeting the creation of agricultural and touristic
vertical green structures called « green calderas »,
spanning over the entire national territory through
the constitution of a National economic and
societal interest group (GIE).
•Each country will come up with its own GIE of
local collectivities that will finance the touristic
and agroclimatic cities of the country. Each of
these GIE will be associated with the Papillon
Source umbrella project through an operational
contract.

The green calderas : description
Green calderas are vertical parks and climate
generators that can be visited in three
dimensions. They are key structures for the
Papillon Source future cities.
They constitute the principal element of the natural geoengineering process of the EL4DEV
program. They are the starting point of any initiative for the transformation/improvement of local
environments, or the creation of humidity and revegetation in arid, mild, or even equatorial
areas. Each city, touristic or not, will have green calderas.

The countryside’s return : the benefits of our
initiative
A stop to rural exodus
The green calderas will evolve to become
agroclimatic complexes with touristic and
agroecological activities.
This will boost entrepreneurship and the
creation of jobs in the fields of tourism,
agriculture,
ecology,
energy,
and
administration.

The end of the welfare state ?
Collective program « The
municipalities counterattack »
The commercial profits
brought by the touristic
activities of the complexes
labelled by the “Papillon
Source” are fairly shared
among municipalities.”

The economic boost created through the new
activities will generate revenue for collectivities,
thus making them less dependent to the state.
In France for example, the revenues from
tourism and agroecology will make small
collectivities less dependent to the state’s
resources, but also to certain taxes paid by the
inhabitants.

A 100% societal project
Founder and director of the EL4DEV program
and the Papillon Source sub-program

The project cannot be financed in exchange of
the acquisition of titles by private actors. The
project will belong entirely to participating
municipalities and their inhabitants.

And why not you ?

The future of our small municipalities is
decided today. Remnants of our history and
representatives of our country sides’ cultures,
they will make great hosts for the Papillon
Source cities and centers.
France, promoting country of the project,
positions itself as the leader of this initiative.
Once completed, it will federate several
countries on every continent. What we
promise are autonomous, ecologic, and
sustainable municipalities for the future
generations.
By becoming an actor of this initiative, you will
also be a driving force of real collaboration
and mutual aid between different countries
and communities.
To all the small collectivities around the
world : join the movement and together let’s
elevate the life and image of our rural areas.
