WESTERVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Former Secretary of State John Kerry and former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be in Ohio next month and join with former Gov. John Kasich to talk about climate change.

All three are involved in a new campaign called World War Zero that is aimed at combating climate change and pollution.

The project has enlisted dozens of celebrities and a bipartisan group of politicians.

Kerry and the two former governors will take part in a town hall meeting at Otterbein University near Columbus on March 8. Organizers say it's the first of many events that will take place this year.

They plan to talk about the impacts of climate change and pollution in Ohio, building a clean energy economy and what people can do to help.

The event will be open to the public.
