At the Engineering School of Barcelona (ETSEIB- UPC) a multimedia pedagogical tool has been developed in order to traini ng concepts and ecojustice, environmentalism and sustainability to the students in Technical degrees, specifically in Robotics Engineering. This didactical tool consists in a serial of multimedia world maps that describes the world situation in a wide range of different trends such as the nuclear energy, the fossil fuels, the electronic components of the machines, the atomic weapons, etc. The developed pedagogical instrument uses a slide presentation format in order to integrate the relevant information of different economical-environmental- social themes related with actual society. In this paper one of the multimedia maps is explained and discussed: the nuclear energy map. This pedagogical resource boosts the reflection in our students about several aspects of social interest in a sustainable overview and students are able to understand the role of Robotics in many and relevant applications.
