The #OcupeOlago (Occupy the lake) Movement took place on March 19, 2016 at Lake Paranoá, in Brasilia, Brazil. Together with the support of dozens of sponsors, over 250 divers participated in a series of environmental initiatives in commemoration of World Water Day, celebrated worldwide on March 22.
This event, now in its third year, was organized by the Brazilian government, private sector companies and civil societies. Through activities related to environmental awareness, the goal was to "promote quality of life through safe and sustainable use of Lake Paranoá."
There were twenty-two activities that took place simultaneously on Saturday and a big celebration on Sunday, with over 100 in attendance.
