The youth parliament – also nicknamed "JuPa", which is short for its German name "Jugendparlament" – represents Monheim's youth at local policy level. It is elected every two years.
Boys and girls aged 13 to 19 years are entitled to vote for its members and stand for election.
The mission of the Youth Parliament is to:
- Give all the adolescents in Monheim a voice and act on their behalf,
- Ensure that young people can participate and are involved in political and administrative planning and decision-making processes,
- Raise awareness for young people's needs,
- Promote understanding between people with different nationalities, ethnic roots, cultures and denominations,
- Contribute to political education.
In March 2019, the new youth parliament was announced in the Ratssaal at the City Hall. After Mayor Daniel Zimmermann had thanked the exiting members of the JuPa, the results of the elections were presented.
