Wayne Gong

Working as a transportation planner, Wayne enjoys collaborating with local residents and stakeholders to design a more walkable, bikeable and liveable community we can call home.  Born and raised in China and having moved to Canada in 2008 to attain his bachelor degree in University of Alberta, Wayne happily calls himself a global citizen and proud Edmontonian. He is interested in exploring cities on bicycle or public transit and helping to shape Edmonton’s transportation network with more sustainable modes of transport. He believes in diversity and that everybody can and should make their voice heard in a vibrant and democratic society.  

In his spare time, you will find Wayne with his girlfriend either volunteering in multiple organizations (Institute of Transportation Engineers, his community garden, art festivals, community bike shop, etc.), cooking fresh and local, or losing himself in the mountains. He is excited to become part of Next Up ‘s Climate Leadership Program and endeavours to give back to the community with his leadership and professional skills.
