Conducted in March 2015, the Connect Project provided a collaborative educational experience focused on the challenges of environmental impacts, over-consumption and ethics in the global apparel industry. Motivated by internationalization, four leading institutions - Buffalo State College (USA), Manchester Metropolitan University (UK), Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology China (CH) and RMIT University Australia (AUS) - collaborated on a transnational project. The project brought together instructor/student teams, one from each institution, to travel around the world in eighteen days to learn and disseminate information about sustainability in the apparel industry.
