GREENWICH, Conn. -- Sixth-grade students from Greenwich's Whitby School hosted a student photo exhibit this past Wednesday evening at Le Pain Quotidien, on Greenwich Avenue.

The photo exhibit showcased student-taken photos about social issues in our community. The popular event was open to the Whitby community and as well as the general public.

Through their unit in Individuals and Societies class, students developed a deeper understanding of ethics, fairness and development, and explored how they can be agents of change. Students learned how people can show agency, how ethics are linked to development and where this meaning comes from.

They also explored whether it is possible to create a change that is fair for everyone. Some of their research questions include:

  • How can we develop organic food to make it fair that everyone can access it?
  • Do abandoned buildings ever get taken care of? Are there groups that help with this?
  • Why do people not give to the less fortunate when they know that it increases development in society? Is it fair?
  • How do I plan to change my community to develop a better environment?

Students chose to explore topics such as gender differences, pollution, true beauty, salary disparities, street art and sustainability, to name a few.
