Educating Managers and Future Managers in Sustainability: Experiences from the Fishpond Experiment at the Berner Fachhochschule

Jan Thomas Frecè, Adamantios Koumpis


The paper presents an implementation of the fishpond experiment as a means to help the development of a first-hand experience of the implications of individual and group behavior to the tragedy of commons. Apart from its value to teaching purposes, we see the value for exploring the potential of scaling up and transfer of its deployment to a broader audiences not only in the educational curricula but also for professional development of future generations of environmentally conscious and responsible managers and corporate decision-makers.
