The World Health Organisation estimates that 9 out of 10 people on our planet are breathing polluted air.

From March 6 - 12 BBC News will be looking at ways to cut air pollution. Solutions from business and technology to legislation and behaviour change.

Throughout the week there will be exclusive reports, examples of where great ideas have worked and discussions with people like you on the issue.

We want YOU to be a part of this project.

If you'd like to take part, tell us what you'd like to see changed to reduce air pollution.

Please post a selfie which includes your solution and tag it #SoICanBreathe - on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. We will feature a selection of your selfies on the BBC site.

Here's an example from Adelaide Arthur in Accra, Ghana:

And Professor Joseph Nye has an example to get you thinking:
