Irena Petkova, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Palace of Culture, Borislav Velkov, and Ivelina Vassileva, Chairperson of the Committee on Environment and Water at the 44th National Assembly .
The children were invited to view the art installations made of plastic packaging in the central lobby of the National Palace of Culture as part of the campaign “re: NPC -Recycle! It’s cultural. “
