- Post your own stories about Boston. These can be anything from celebrating Boston's unsung Covid heroes and random acts of kindness, to beautiful pictures you have taken of the Boston area, whether landmarks or your favourite local café to grab a drink. Using the hashtag #BeBoston.
- Support local businesses. Do you have a favourite cafe, craft shop, local store or market stall? We invite you to shop local and help Boston's independents thrive.
- Commit to getting to know people from different communities. We are inviting representatives from different communities to become ambassadors and to invite people to their events and celebrations (when Covid safe).
